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 did tell Instalation to set everything up but I discovered I had to install apache, sql and php all by my self.................. ok then.
I donwloaded Apache bin and compiled....... now I go to konqueror and type
and there it is, the ok screen.
Now I try to modify the httpd.conf and changue the documents root, I manage to open the file, modifiy it and save it.......... but nothing changues.... I still get the contents of httpdocs and apache dir.....
any idea? BTW I configured Mandrake to auto log on as my name, now I can't get it to log as root......... it just won't give me that option
Click on 'configure my computer' enter root password which opens the Mandrake Control Centre. Click on the Server Configuration icon, if its missing as mine was you'll have to install 'wizard' in software manager, exit MCC and update the menu in a terminal as root by
update -menus -v
Set up a folder as root in /var/www/ yourfolder I used file manager-superuser which has to be setup.
Then MCC again.
Assuming you have the Server config icon go to web wizard follow instructions and set up your new document root say:
