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.

- don't know what cluster is ?
- massive amount of info possible.
- don't know about NTP server.
- Apache I know, would like to know more about it.
- don't know windows domain server.
- File server ??
- print server ??

if you need something that can handle thousands of concurrent users then you should look into something with multipe cpu's with multiple cores and high amounts of ram (for example google's search servers do not have harddisks; all their computers use terrabytes of very fast ram).
network administration requires at least a little research and knowledge of the various topics in the subject matter (else, it will be like asking a doctor to land a plane).
As above, this is a very vague and open ended qn; can you list the services you want from the 'server' and the likely number of users (whether people or other servers.
Is this going to be a production machine?
What sort of environment eg academic, commercial, non-profit etc etc
