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.

You say "wat i wanna know exactly" but you're not being that exact yourself, right? What do you want to serve your clients? An intranet web site? Users home directories over NFS? Storage using Samba shares? BTW monitoring depends on the situation and on the existence of Privacy Laws your setup would be subject to, so is this a home setup? Work? Class room? Institution? And what do you want to monitor?
i am gonna use this four systems for work especially in developing a software
Again, you are not providing any useful details. What, exactly, do you mean by "developing a software"?? WHAT KIND of software? What does it do? WHY do you need four systems to develop one piece of software?
Short answer: a server has a service running that listens on a specific network port. The client sends requests to that port, which the service responds to, much like a web server: listens on port 80, when queried by a browser it will send the requested content to the client.
for example a java application which might have different module so i thought of spliting the work to each ppl .
sorry for not being very clear about my ques .... i am not a tech guy i have just graduated an year ago . and new to linux .
If you're not a 'tech guy', what's your degree in? If you don't know programming, network communications, or Linux, asking how to build a client-server application is going to be a HUGE task for you.
No idea what you mean by "a java application which might have different module so i thought of spliting the work to each ppl". Programming is programming..you need to know how the languages work, and understand the basics. It's not going to be easier in Java than it is in any other language you don't know. And what is "splitting the work to each ppl" mean??
Define your GOAL...WHAT EXACTLY do you want to accomplish? What does this software that you want to write DO?
