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 desktop running Linux 7.3 (I can not use the latest version as a software I need to run is supported by only this version) running on it and an application software.
I have a single license of this software, and would like to share it among more than on person. One mechanism is that we can have this machine on the internet and use it as server- so the first question is what does it take to make it as a server, so that case people can remotely log- on to this machine and use the s/w remotely, as we have single license of SPW, only one person can use it at a time, but at diffferent time, different people can use it by logging on into it.
Security is not that a big concern, we would like to achieve in as simplest manner and as inexpensive as possible.
If using X is an option, how do I set it up on both linux as well as using a X client (like X Manager) on PC side. I am familiar with using on client side, but what do I need to setup on Linux desktop side. I want to be able to access the entire desktop in a GUI fashion.
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
