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 am working on SunOS 5.8, and I need to do ssh on it. But no ssh process running on it and when I search for sshd file , I am not able to see it in either /usr or /etc. Is ssh not installed on my machine, and if not how can I can download the ssh and install it on my SunOS.
I don't use SunOS. Does it have a package manager & repository or a DVD of packages. If so, it would be best to use the package so that it is built properly for your system. For example, for most Linux distro's, it will be built with PAM and libwrap support. These will be optional configuration items if you build it from source. If this work was done for you by a packager for your system, that would be the better solution. If not, then you could download the source and build it yourself. http://www.openssh.com/portable.html
To quote from the openssh site: "Unfortunately, in particular since OpenSSH does authentication, it runs into a *lot* of differences between Unix operating systems".
You might want to google for "openssh solaris ./configure" to find what configuration options you need. It may even depend on the version of Solaris that you use.
