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.

ok whats happening now is im having the tech guy where i rented my VPS from whipe off my whole VPS and only put in CentOS and webmin and the minimum dependancies for webmin. im going to install everything else by hand.
whatever installed everything when i first got it seemed to just put files everywhere i think there could of just been too many problems
Just wanted to post that I had the exact same problem. What I couldint do for approx 2 weeks in Red Hat enterprise, took me about 2 hours using Ubuntu. For anyone who wants to learn Linux and is having problems installing, configuring, etc. I suggest you use Ubuntu, GREAT distribution
I could not agree more with Nickk. There have been distributions that have given me hell trying to get this installed. I am currently using Ubuntu server edition on my IBM Netfinity 5000 at my house. Runs great for an old machine.
