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 have a dedicated server with Plesk 7.5.4 on CentOS 3.3 and I need to be able to serve secure pages. When I contacted Plesk about a similar problem (getting the web stats to work) they said I need to open port 433 to do this. How can I do this with either Plesk or through SSH?
I've never used centos, but i have heard it has a pretty extensive firewall. If you have this enabled and want to continue using the one with centos, you may want to find some docs. Otherwhise you can disable the firewall and use some other that may be a little easier for you to config.
Are you using a router? you will need to open the port for the server ip on that as well.
nmap - command not found. I'd install it but I'm going to request an OS reload on the server anyway, there are a ton of problems with it. I'll try and fix this if it's still a problem after the reload.
