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 linux server , there are many files in it , I want to let the user to use browser ( windows ) to access the files to upload / download files , as below command , the user can access the path in the server "linuxserver" , can advise is it possible ? thx
Yes, that's possible. You can use an ftp server for that, a Samba server, or an NFS system (don't know if NFS can be used in browser, maybe others can confirm or deny). I have ftp servers set up here and they are all accessible using a browser by putting ftp://servername in the address bar.
[url]the ftp is ok , can advise if I want the user ftp the system without input the password and directly go to the download path eg. /tmp/download ( no need to cd path ) , can advise what can i do ? thx
ps. but i don't want use null password as this is not secure.
