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.

here is what i'd like to do. i don't know how hard it is/what will make it easy. I can start with a fresh install (I've got Mandrake 8.2 handy).
a single computer as firewall, NAT (internet sharing to the local LAN), a basic web server (php/mysql) AND enabling a DMZ (second network zone). so, 2 or 3 ethernet cards, one to a DSL modem, one to the local LAN (a hub), and i guess an independent one to a win2k development box (we do asp work here as well). so i would want, for example, http requests for lin.myoffice.com to be hosted by this linux box (that is also being the firewall), but http requests for win.myoffice.com would be passed to the win2k server. The local LAN clients would ideally be able to access both the windows box and linux gateway/firewall/server.
I've looked at smoothwall/ipcop, but I want this machine to be a basic server as well.
so, how do i get from a blank machine to where i want to be? I'm not a wiz on the command line, so i'm tempted to an app like firestarter (can it do what i'm asking?), but if i've got to stumble through some terminal stuff, so be it.
