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.

Hello. I *really* hope someone could be good enough to help me on this. Bear with me, this is a linux question after the windows tatter...
I have a dedicated windows server with oneandone, which i used to administer via Remote Desktop. Last night I was configuring IPSec to lock down some ports and accidentally closed ALL the ports. I can no longer gain access to my server. (applause)
My hosts offered two choices - re-image the server and lose everything, or create a linux boot and allow me to use ssh (putty) to login to the server and FTP my data to my computer at home.
I've been a windows programmer for years, but when it comes to linux I know nothing. It's imperative that I get that data off the server before it can be re-imaged, my business will fail otherwise. I promise to backup every day after today!!!
I would love it if somebody could list the commands or point me in the right direction in order to achieve this.
The server has a drive C: and a drive E: - my data is on E. I need to login using putty, and ftp the entire contents of drive E to my home computer. I'm not sure if drive E is fat or ntfs, if that matters.
