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 am setting up a server and i'd like to know the following. Can i install services/servers (ftp,http,etc.) on a single machine and run them from different OSes at the same time, with the use of Xen? I mean, that i will have 2 OSes running in parallel, with the one running an ftp server and the other running an http server.
I 'd like to get my hands dirty with different OSes and i'd like to know if Xen can be used towards this.
Of course, the OSes have to be supported by Xen.
Unfortunately we do not currently support Windows; the paravirtualized approach we use to get such high performance has not been usable directly for Windows to date. However recently announced hardware support from Intel and AMD will allow us to transparently support Windows XP & 2003 Server in the near future. We are working on this and intend to have support available by the time the new processors are available."
