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.

Hello guys! long time no come here, but im still a newb!
Anyhow, i remember seeing here a how-to setup a linux
system to be used as webserver, but i cant find it no more! what im looking for specificaly is how to partition correctly a hdd most than anything, i think i can pretty much figure out the rest y myself (hopefully!)
let me know if you have a link to that how to, or if anyone can help me with the partition, i remember on my old system i was using something like 4 partitions but i do not remember exactly what they were, i think they were; /var, /home, /usr, /etc but im not sure what it was exactly, only thing i remember is the /home beeing the biggest of the partition!
Distribution: Distribution: RHEL 5 with Pieces of this and that.
Kernel 188.8.131.52, KDE 3.5.8 and KDE 4.0 beta, Plu
/var is where things like log files, web pages can be stored for a web server. Same for email under /var/spool/mail. Some create a partition just for /var/spool/mail and then use quotas to control a users mailbox size. Of course this can be done virtually as well.
