Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I inherited a sysadmin position for a mid size educational organization (75 people) and we completely lack any form of collaborative software-- even the email list is in paper/pdf form. I thought some sort groupware would dramatically communication. My situation:
-The needs are very basic; we need calendaring and shared contacts. Stuff like you would see in MS outlook/exchange... notification of new meetings, email reminders of meetings, etc.
-Needs to be web accessible.
-Everyone uses or is migrating to thunderbird, and I'd to leverage that.
-Everyone has an existing email address, the servers of which are managed by the school system, which is out of my control.
-It needs to be free/cheap and run on *nix.
-Easy to administer-- this isn't my primary job so I can't afford to baby sit it.
I looked at zimbra, but I think it conflicts with our external email handling because zimbra seems to want to do everything under the sun.
Any thoughts/experience/flames appreciated.
