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.

Hi I am getting the following error. But when I checked under what login I am, it gives me my name. I checked /home directory and /export/home/ but I do not have a folder with my username. What is this can someone explain?
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

I dont think you need to create the directory in all the servers but from the server which exports the home directory when you login. This typically could be a NFS server. If you are not incharge of the servers then you could ask one of the administrators to create the directory for you.
