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.

okay, first the intro.. i used linux as a desktop user for a couple of years.. however i'm still a noob... big time i'm realizing now.
my goal is to setup an intranet webpage at work
i currently have my own website for my hobby.
that's hosted offsite so all the server side is taken care of.
my office has a DNS server already setup, so that's done.
the server at the office is a capable machine. we want to run Fedora Core 5 . it seems to be the standard. it doesn't matter how many times we wipe the drive either.
how do i verify that apache ( or a recommended web server is installed/up/running? i'm also having a huge n00b moment trying to find out the IP address of my linux box @ home where i'm practicing this all from this weekend.
the software i want to run is SMF
so i also need SQL ( preferably with a GUI because i'm a terminal n00b )
and PHP ( again, GUI if necessary to configure ) .
where again are the file stored for the webserver?
also need : FTP and appropriate tutorial for somebody clueless to linux .
okay, i have vsftpd, apache and webmin installed with all of the correct modules. works good. i can login for the other computer and browse the "website" that i'm trying to host on this server. however, i need ftp access to work from outside of the local box. when i'm in terminal and type ftp > o localhost > etc... i can login from there. when i try to login to ftp from anothe computer it says login incorrect. i have local logins enabled... the domain is still setup as localhost.localdomain. do i just need to login as admin or admin@ ????
also, any recommendations on how to install MySql?
