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 with Fedora and a laptop with Suse, I'm able to log in from my laptop to the desktop using ssh. But if I reboot the desktop, then I can't log in through the laptop.
I need to login directly on the desktop, before I can use ssh from the laptop.
Is it anyway that I can login from the laptop directly after reboot?
I want to get rid off the monitor, keyboard and etc... of the desktop and I can't have it on all the time, that's why I need to turn it on and off every now and then.
The message that I get when I try to connect to the desktop, before I login locally on the desktop is:
"ssh: connect to host localhost.localdomain port 22: no route to host"
I was checking when the sshd gets started, and for what I understand the sshd should be run at start from /etc/rc5.d when I look there I found S55sshd, which I guess is sshd. Also in /etc/init.d is sshd.
I would expect that if you loon in /etc/hosts on the laptop that you see it defined in there for the laptop. localhost.localdomain is a (sort of) reserved name, so trying to use that to connect to a remote machine is not the way to go.
Try connecting via the IP rather than a hostname if you don't want to change it, but it should really have a useful name to make life easier.
