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.

Thanks folks as I was having the same problerm FTPing until I started vsftpd. Funny how things won't work when they are not running. Now that I have it running, how do I add it to the start routine going forward?
Also, this is a new install of Redhat 9 (done by someone else). Apache is display index.html from /www instead of from /var/www/html as it is configured (in the Apache Config and in conf file). Thoughts?
