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 a linux noob ( certainly lol) but i am rapidly learning. Basically myself and a few friends rented a Linux box, mainly just to play counter strike on. As our requirements are low we only needed one linux server ( cost mainly). Now, im learning linux but this is my prob
I can logon to the box using putty, no probs, i can install the game of my choice no probs. However i have to leave putty running in order for the server to stay active. If i close putty, the game quits. I have read however that there is a nohup command and some other stuff that i can try in order to close putty but leave processe running on the box. This is what i feel i need. Is there anyone who can help me with this. These commands are new and somewhat alien to me. Ive tried with what i can find but to no avail.
Hangs? That is the normal output: it means that the standard output and the standard error are sent to the file nohup.out to check them later. Have you pressed "Enter" after that message appeared? You should return to the command prompt.
Ah!, i restarted it again and checked it worked!!, i assumed it hadnt because usually when the server starts it scrolls text about the point the server is at whilst starting. Now, i closed putty and it is still up woo hoo, now i just need to figure out how to stop the server lol
