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.

The other day i was given a mess of server equipment that is OLD but I see people are still using them.
I have a RaQ2 & RaQ4, com3 linkswitch 1000, x2 cisco 2501 with some kind of cards in the back, x2 Bay Netowrks Advance Remote Node, x3 Prelude T1 DSU/CSU Boxes and a few switches and hubs plus enough wire and cables to go around the world it seems. Also a small rack.
I can build gaming computers and things all day long but when it comes to servers and things I am just clueless but I want to learn this and how it all works and such.
From what little I can tell the old computers that came with all this were running windows NT 4.0 but I can not get pass the admin password when it boots up which only happens 1 in 3 or so times from all the error messages. Whoever had this up and running was what looks like to be a huge porn server for pay sites. The RaQ4 when it come on all I get is "cobalt networks then says loading Kernel" nothing more. The RaQ2 takes about 15 minutes to come up but then its gives me a coldbat1. berenter plus some kind of ip address which I was warned by someone that it is a static address becareful ???
I have searched the net for questions and answers and still feel as lost as I did or even more lost now.
Is there anyone out there that can help or tell me where to go for help on this ???? HELP PLEASE I NEED SOME SLEEP
