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've setup my linux box as a ftp sever and a http server.
well, the default ports that it got setup was http: 80 ftp: 21
but I realized that I cannot gain acess through my ip internet ip address because
my isp blocked those two ports.
I've changed the http:80 to 85 through Red HAt HTTP Server Settings
I've also went to /etc/iptables/
to change to allow port 85 instead of 80
