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.

Is it possible to have a folder that is stored on my server mounted via smb etc, that copies over any file that has been updated on my machine? I believe I'll prob have to learn some scripting to accomplish this, but here is what I want to do.
I have three computers, a laptop for school, a desktop at home and a server box sitting around for hosting files (I have access to this from anywhere). I have a folder for all of my school work, we'll call it "school". This folder is present on my laptop and desktop. Sometimes I work on my laptop at school and have new files created / updated. Other times, I work on my desktop and alter files / create new ones there. What I was thinking was using my file server as a repository. After I am finished working on one machine, I want to upload all the new files/folders to the server, so that when I work on the other machine, I can run a quick "fetch files" and being to work off of where I left of. That way, I don't have to copy files over via email or my network. Also, it's very helpful to have the updated files always stored on my server because sometimes I need to grab a file but don't have access to any of my computers.
Any suggestions to where to start and how I'd go about this?
