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 have a SuSe 9.3 machine running squid and squidguard acting as the firewall/gateway/proxy server for the network. Would it be possible to setup an antivirus program on this machine that could protect the lan? Since the computer is the internet gateway for the lan all of the web traffic has to pass through it. Theres gotta be a software company out there that makes linux av software for this sort of thing.
We also just setup a windows 2003 domain controller and we're thinking about getting Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition to administer the office virus protection centrally on the PDC. The problem is the licensing for NAV corporate edition is pretty expensive, and it would cost more than $1,000 to purchase the software with enough access licenses to account for every machine in the office. We've already spent enough money on the new windows 2003 server so im not ready to drop another grand on software.
We've researched other AV software like AVG and Bit Defender, but i was really hoping there would be a linux solution that i could install on my gateway to lock down the LAN.
i had a hard time getting clamav to configure properly so i decided to use squid to filter file extensions.
this site provided a lot of good information for anyone who wants to filter specific file types with squid: http://www.linux-faqs.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=28
