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.

What I'm looking for is a way to execute a script that resides on another system. I want to login in, execute the script, and logout. The Script (that I need to execute ) already resides on the remote machine.
If someone could come up with some help for me, I would really appreciate it. SSH is not a problem, by the way
I need to be able to execute the script remotely without going through the whole logging in mess.
The reason behind all this is that I have to execute this same script on multiple machines and I want an easier way of accomplishing it.
Create a (passwordless) ssh key and bind it to the command you want to run (by prepending the key with "command=/path/to/your/script" in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys). Then run ssh -i ~/.ssh/key_you_created user@host.
alternatively you can go without keys and just run ssh user@host /path/to/your/script
