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.

Err..... I've had some trouble with apache...... I can't seem to start up the server correctly because when I go to http://localhost, it doesn't work. My friend told me there is a UNIX server up everytime I run Linux, I just don't notice it. I'd like to look into that one more, or could some1 plz help me with Apache?
Try this: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Apache-Overview-HOWTO.html or possibly here /usr/share/doc/apache.
Alternatively, tell us exactly what you did and what msgs/results you got and we'll try to help.
This cmd shows the httpd (apache) process running:
ps -ef|grep http
on FC3 using bash shell
Error 403 means that what you want is there, but you don't have permission to access it.
For files to be accessed by the Web server their permissions must be at least 644 (owner r+w, group read, others read). Directories must have at least read and execute for owner, group and other (755 in numeric notation).
Distribution: Server Application of Fedora 7 (at the moment), I have played with many others however.
in addition to what hob said, make sure that the person owning the folder also owns the files that need accesed. In a users directory for example, i would sometimes make a file while root, when the owner really needed to be the user. type "ls -l" to see permissions and owners and then if you need to change ownership of a file type "chown userxxx.userxxx filexxx" where userxxx is the user and filexxx is the file that needs changed
