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 am not that new to Linux, however I don’t get on it every day. I have been using RH9 for years with no problems, (SAMBA/MAIL/WEB) but after a recent machine upgrade I decided to go with Fedora rather than the older RH9 for my home setup. Good servers 1.8 Ghz 512 megs of ram.
I run a home web site, file server and a home mail server. Couldn’t get Fedora 3 to even load up properly so I used Fedora 2. Samba is working fine, but when I edit httpd.conf the file appears to not make any difference in the web site! All I see is the default site!!! Why? Editing the conf file worked fine in RH9! I even tried the gnome utility and it will not write the file to disk for some odd reason.
I think I have Sendmail working but I can’t get past port 110/25 being blocked. I have the firewall switched off I also tried it on but unblocking port 25 and 110. (I have another firewall working with port 25 and 110 routed to the Linux box) I am using an XP laptop and Outlook Express to access the mail.
Please don’t tell me I have to use MS products to get this done, pleeeeeeseeee….
