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.

hmm, this is going really slow. I just did what the example had, nmap -A -T4 ipaddress. It gave me a warning about giving up on a port early, than said Connect Scan Timing: 23.69% done, about a half hour remaining.
Our final project in my CS class is to attempt to do a buffer exploit on a fake buggy server that our professor set up. I've been messing around in Red Hat and Ubuntu and have noticed that even though they are both linux, when I make a buffer and try to overwrite the return address by going outside the range of the buffer there is a different amount that I have to go by depending on Red Hat or Ubuntu.
Wouldn't I be putting my cart before the horse? If the server is running red hat version x and I write my exploit on red hat version y, and so it won't work on version x, I won't be able to use it to find out that the server is running red hat version x.
