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.

and i want to jump to "* server-administration::" to , how to do it?
The dime should have fallen slightly earlier. Where did you get the file from? I guess it was a mysql.info.gz that you've extracted.
However those files are supposed to be read with the info command. E.g. info mysql reads and displays the contents of mysql.info.gz
I'm not a regular user of the info command, so not familiar with it. Press <tab> (that is, the tab key) will take you to the menu entries (the cursor will be on the '*' at the beginning of the line. Press <enter> to navigate to (read: display) the selected item.
I don't know how to get back to the main menu.
OK, just found that you can get some help while in info. Simply press 'h' and it shows how to navigate (amongst other things); you can go back by pressing 'u' (up one level).
