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.

ok i have a running game server 188.8.131.52:27015 that i setup by my self.
but i have a couple questions i need to ask.
i wish to uninstall vsftpd and get the proftpd instead. because the help file i seem not to be able to find.
what i need to be able to do is to log in a change the files that are in the /home/cstrike/hlds_1 via ftp and be able to add accounts to people.
i seem not to be able to get much down Via SSH but i did get apt-get and did the update and upgrade fine.
and i updated the kernal to the latest but i wish to have all the lastest bugs fixs installed.
i know u can run things in the back ground process but i seem not to be able to find out how to do it by adding the $ to the end.
the command i use is
./hlds_run -game cstrike +map de_dust2 -autoupdate -secure -port 27015 +maxplayers 16
in putty, when i close putty the server shuts down, what can i do about that.
i cant offer u much if u can help admin my server but, in a couple of days i plan to take what i know for this server a build a new server.
with a new mobo and more ram and more space, if u need some online space i can give it to u Via ftp.
there are other thing i wish to do with this server like fix up the web server load hl stats on it with mysql.
