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.

Im currently re-configuring a public computerlab of 25 PC's I would like to setup a virtual server as a proxy/webfilter to force all PC's to go through to check for the usual blocking (swear words, adult content etc...)
I used to use Coyote Linux many years ago for internet proxy, but Im sure the webfilter part is not supported in coyote.
any advice on something free/GNU or low cost? it's for a not for profit kids club.
I need to protect them from the bad stuff on the internet, Net nanny is toomuch to configure on each PC, Im looking for a central place to control it. Our Netgear router has stopped working correctly (doesn't email us anymore)
Although, I guess you could run practically any distro with Dansguardian and Sqid. Depends how much time you want to invest. Also consider that running as a Virtual machine might not be the ideal idea, performance and network configuration wise. But it definitely do-able.
My system I would be using is an HP DL380 Dual Proc Server,6 GB ram it was donated so I was going to use vmware to utilize the server as 2 servers and add a Windows XP vm for periodic quake server for the good kids.
Now the only desired component I have been asked to offer the managment of the establishment is to offer them a type of interface they can add/remove the swear words or sites to block, similar to thier netgear device now.
I will explore the squid and dansguardian tool. Thanks!.
