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 like using Quanta for editing but then they have to go into the /var/www/htdocs directory to view the output. From a browswer just point your browser to localhost and it should pop up. Just remember if you make a directory in htdocs then you would type in the browser localhost/somedirectory
on the similar topic....how would i view a php file that is on someone elses site....ie...i am surfing and see a site that is foo.php...and i see it do something that i would want to know how to write....is there a way to see the raw php code that the site is using to generate the page....
Nope. All the PHP processing is done on the server, so the PHP source doesn't get sent to your browser. The only possible way to see it is if the PHP script is posted online somewhere (e.g. it's part of an open source package).
