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.

Apache installation and configuration is quite easy and there are tons of example configuration files (btw httpd.conf is well documented itself). With ftp it's a bit herder, because you need to know which server you'd like to install. MySQL configuration: you should think who to allow to write which database, that's the most important problem.
I know the configutation under windows. But i'm totaly new to linux and shell. So that I didnt even know where my apache and the apache config files are located. Also the installation of programms isnt easy, becouse I didnt know how to get the packages on my computer without using a cdrom (shell).
It's quite simple
If you're lucky, there's also lynx or links installed. They're both text mode web browsers. Try to run them. If they're not available, you can always download them via ftp, install and use.
