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 don't mean to sound grumpy, but it would have been infintely more helpful to anyone searching through the archives if you could have posted your own findings on whatever this thread may have been on. Oh, and only Mods and Jeremy can delete threads.
Well, it seemed a bit odd for me to put up a question at a forum and answer it myself some days later (while there were no others answering and only a very few reading the thread).
Besides, even my original question here was incorrect and misleading due to insufficient data I had at the beginning.
That is why I wanted to delete this thread.
Moreover, the problem have lead to a security issue and I started a new thread at the security forum. Anyone who is concened with that can find it here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=27974
Thanks for following this up. As I said, I didn't mean to sound grumpy, but quite often when a newbie asks a question that has been answered many, many times before, they are told that the answer is already in the archives. I understand that it can sound a little odd to post the answer to your own question, but it may help someone else a little further down the line.
Anyway, thanks for clearing it up and posting the relevant link.
