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.

Well.... i have installed red hat linux 9.0... and i have taken ALL the packages that were avalable when installing it(4,85gb)... but i dont know how to make a web server... and how to put stuff on it... cuz this is the first time i have ever seen what linux looks like and tried it... so help plz...
Ok... i have only used windows before today.... and i dont get any of the freakin' stupid tutorials i try to read.. because when ever i have to install some thing it says that i have to write "makefile" or "install" or some thing... and i dont get it... so can somebody please help me find some place where they explain it to me so i can understand... cuz im having a hard time setting up a webserver with apache... cuz i dont get any of the shit that i have to do!!
all kinds of pretty docs for you to read ;-)
at least read this stuff, and attempt to do it, and then when you get caught at some steps then ask questions .... its easier to try and fail and ask questions, then it is to just ask questions about general things ...
and when it says you have to "write" things, you will be typing that stuff at the command line ....
First you need to go to /etc/httpd/conf/ and edit the file httpd.conf (this is the Apache server configuration). Then you must locate php.ini and configure that as well. Actually you do not need to configure a lot in php.ini, just the Session directory, so you can use sessions in PHP. There is nothing you need to configure for mysql. All you need to do then is go to the Main menu under System settings --> Server settings --> Services and enable(start) httpd, mysqld and/or vsftpd. Httpd will start Apache (HTTP and PHP), mysqld wil start MySQL and vsftpd will start FTP services.
Well you're up and running if you did all to here. You can edit the /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file to set things for FTP server as well.
