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've just finished setting up my first Linux based network. My primary goal is to use the setup to practice for the RHCE exam, while also having it be functional as a file server for storing my data.
Right now, I have two PCs connected behind to a router, both of which are running Fedora 14. One is a true "server", a 1U unit with 4 Tb of storage in RAID (hardware) 10, and the other is my desktop.
My question is what do services do? I'd like to know what types of services that I would need to use for starters for a file server, and any other software, configurations, etc. that I would need to tinker with to have this setup to work correctly. I'd like to essentially have multiple users be able to login on the desktop and access files on the central file server.
After I work out the details of this, I may move on to using the server for something else, such as a firewall, mail server, etc. Would there be any problem using the same server for multiple functions such as this? (Dual quad core, 12 Gb RAM).
Appreciate any replies / advice on how to start my learning process with this setup. Please feel free to steer me in another direction if I've missed something
