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.

Another thing I'm working on is setting up another server exactly how our current one is, but to keep it as a backup. Are there any certain things I should look at on the server so I know how to load this new one as an exact duplicate?
I'm assuming RHEL from your profile info. After an install there should be a file in root's home called anaconda-ks.cfg. That will allow you to duplicate that config (only as installed) , using kickstart on the next box. If you want an exact clone, look at clonezilla.
I do have one question looking at the anaconda-ks.cfg file though. How do I tell if LVM was used when configuring the hard drives based on that file? I'm doing the GUI install on my second server, and am at the partitioning screen, but I dont know how to proceed.
