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.

well, i'll tell you what i'm trying to do. I want to start named every time my machine boots up. I guess I am assuming that there is a ... well.... let's call it a shell script that starts up specified daemons when the computer boots. I am assuming that what I need to do is add named to that list of daemons. how would i do that?
The typical way of starting a service on boot up is to put a symlink from an actuall service in /etc/rc.d/init.d and put the symlink in /etc/rc.d/rcX.d were X is the run level you want the service to start at.
no, i have been spending most of my time today figuring out how to safely remotely create my firewalls. Which means i've had to figure out what shell scripts were and how to use them, how cron works, how iptables works and all that type of a thing. But I will probably spend more time tommorow on this. Thanks for your help and suggestions
