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.

Is there anyway when an user clicks on a url(which is infact a video link) it asks for username and password and checks with LDAP server for authentication. Finally, the user gets redirected to that url.
well yes, but this is nothing at all to do with a link in itself. the link would need to go to some part of a web server which requires authentication. If you use standard apache ldap authentication it'll do what you want.
If you want to do this at application level not server level, then again yes you can, but that's down to totally arbitrary code you'd need to work out for yourself.
When I tried to do some research, I found something like this...Will something like this work??
To enable your web pages to use LDAP authentication, please follow the listed steps:
Create a file named .htaccess in the directory you wish to protect
Inside it insert something like this:
AuthName "Apache LDAP Authentication"
require user username
