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 an old Samba server where I have created all the users for the company. I'd like to replace our current e-mail server with either Sendmail or Postfix, but I'd like to know how I can synchronize all my users between the two servers so I don't have to duplicate the users on every server. I currently do this for our Novell and Linux servers and I'd like to eliminate the extra step.
I had a feeling OpenLDAP would be mentioned. I have no idea why, but I just don't get LDAP. I understnd what its all about, but it seems extremely complicated to me. Is this fear unfounded or is it truly as bad as it seems?
I'm still going to tinker with OpenLDAP to synch users on our Linux and Novell servers, but I found a really nice way to synchronize users and software in Linux only using Webmin. Setting up an Webmin server cluster is as easy as typing an IP address for each server then clicking "SYNCH". As long as users have the same password for both servers, it works like a charm.
I knew there was a reason I chose Webmin to help administer my servers!
