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.

Hi I am a newbie here, don't know if this is the right place to post. Do excuse me for any wrong post.
I am setting up Sendmail 8.13.4 on Mandriva 2006 to act as an internal server, and to act as a client to an external mail server - smtp.eth.net. I have gone through the sendmail.mc changes needed and done that, but when i try to send mail I get a message "530 5.7.0 Auth command has not been given". I have created authinfo file and also created authinfo.db, set up genericstable as well.
My sendmail.mc details are here:
dnl This is the macro config file used to generate the /etc/sendmail.cf
dnl file. If you modify the file you will have to regenerate the
dnl /etc/sendmail.cf by running this macro config through the m4
dnl m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
dnl You will need to have the sendmail-cf package installed for this to
dnl define delivery mode: interactive, background, or queued
dnl define(`confDELIVERY_MODE', `i')
dnl virtusertable: redirect incoming mail to virtual domain to particular user or domain
dnl FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable')dnl
dnl genericstable: rewrite sender address for outgoing mail
FEATURE(genericstable,`hash -o /etc/mail/genericstable')dnl
