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.

I still have the packages from the 9.1 full install. I'd like to remove anything apache and all the other packages that work for apache like php(if that's installed), I assume MySQL also works with apache, etc.
I'd like to then Install apache 2.0.49 from source and reaquire the newest versions of such packages I"m uninstalling.
I hear apache is good. I don't think complete secureness is possible with anything like this. Though, does apache have good security or should I look elsewhere for a server?
I'm going to be using this server for a php-website, php-forums, e-mail, and ftp. This is also my first time configuring apache, etc. This'll be a big project for me. What are your suggestions? "Just read the manuals"?

I'm a newbie at linux and Just installed Mandrake 10.0 Official on:
P2-300 Mhz, 512Mb Ram, 7Gb on 2 drives.
anyway, I didn't install any GUI, and I've managed to learn some this weekend. I installed Apache/PHP/msyql at the time of the install, but for some reason mysql isn't set up as a module on apache.
I can't find the configure file on my computer, I guess it didn't get put on there with the install...so what do I do now?
I did # find / -name 'configure'
and it finds nothing at all (before I got a new copy of apache)... I did download a new copy of Apache 2.0.49 and untar'ed it (but not installed), can I copy the configure file to my other apache directory and use it there?
