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 new to LinuxQuestions.org forum. I want to build 64 bit linux machine with centOS distribution. I have a machine with windows 7 which I want to clean and instal centOS on it. Can any one suggest me where I can find centOS 64 bit OS and some instruction how to clean and download centOS.
I have successfully installed CentOS6.3 into my machine. I am trying to access this machine through my Laptop using putty. But it is not working. Before that, I set the following in etc/init.d.
1. First restarted init.d # ./sshd restart and then entered iptables -F and uncommented port 22 in the sshd_config file. Remember I am in the same LAN.
Any suggestion please. Your help is highly appreciated.
On serverside - sshd_config file has following info.
port 22 (uncommented)
#activation of protocol 1
Protocol 2 (uncommented)
In the /etc/sysconfig/iptables file:
:INPUT ACCEPT [0:0]
:FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0]
-A INPUT -m state -- state ESTABLISHED, RELATED -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject with icmp-host-prohibited
I didn't change anything on port 22. It is as it. I just uncomment it.
Here are other two files.
