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'm planning to buy a cheap computer that I can run as my own webserver. I'm trying to keep the price low (with very few parts) and I would like to be able to install then control the server from my current computer. I use Mandrake 9.1 and I plan to use it for the server as well.
I have the installation files on my computer, so I'm planning to do a NFS install. I've found instructions on how to do it and it doesn't seem to hard. However, for the sake of convenience and cost, I would like to be able to control the whole process from this computer. After I put in the floopy and boot up, I would like to (if possible) control the installation remotely (so that I don't move around my keyboard and mouse and monitor, because I don't want to buy new ones either). Is that possible?
I haven't bought anything yet, but I plan to get a case, motherboard, CPU, hard drive, floppy drive and network card. Is there anything else that I will need to perform this install and run this server?
Finally, I just want to double check if my whole plan is reasonable. Even if I have to use spare parts to get the install going, is it possible (and if so, how difficult) to control the computer remotely after I get it all set up?
