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'm an extreme newbie and I've just installed Linux 8 and I have Apache server running. I see the initial test page and I can't find it via the terminal. where is that file located?? I want to publish website on the Linux box but I don't know where the files hould go.
By default your webfiles would be in /var/www/html . If you create index.html in /var/www/html you should see that page pop up instead of the initial test page assuming your httpd.conf file is setup correctly.
I think that page is just there to let you know that Apache is working when you first install it. You shouldn't have to edit it at all. If you put an index.html file in /var/www/html then go to http://your.ip.address.here you will see your index.html page.
