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'm pretty new with linux. Until recently I thought I knew enough about it to hold my own, but I realize now I don't. I installed Apache 2, PHP 5 and mySQL 4, but now I need to get sendmail up and running so that I can use the PHP sendmail functions for my web site... I wrote the following PHP to test sendmail:
I really don't know what's going on... If somebody could help I'd appreciate it. I did some reasearch on sendmail online, but found nothing truly distro specific. I'm running the version that came with Slackware 10.0, so I don't want to mess it up by trying to configure from one of the tutorials that doesn't realize that.
Well, I got through the issue using the following PHP command. The fix was listed in the extended version of the PHP manual:
This is exact code...
mail("firstname.lastname@example.org", "Post updated: ".$pName." from: ".$pCategory,
"You are subscribed to the following post:\r\n".
$pName." in category: ".$pCategory."\r\n".
"And it has just been updated. Please click:\r\n\r\n".
