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've finally gotten around to building a small linux box at home so that I can experiment with PHP/MySQL and server admin without having to use my live webserver.
I've installed Red Hat Linux 9 and would like to upgrade from the installed versions of Apache, PHP, MySQL
I'm a complete Linux newbie so all this is starting to get frustrating to say the least. I've nearly packed it all in more than once this weekend! I've got the Red Hat Linux 9 Bible which is OK as long as things work first time. I've managed to install RH9 onto my machine and I can access it from my main desktop using the linux machine's IP address (192.168......). I've even been able to access the web files so I had thought I was doing OK.
Problem I have is trying to upgrade Apache/PHP/MySQL.
I managed to upgrade MySQL to 4.0.20 using the instructions in another thread 176196 here (can't post the URL as this is my first post).
I've tried to upgrade Apache to 2.0.49 but get this error message.
[root@localhost rpm]# rpm -U httpd-2.0.49-4.i386.rpm

I've downloaded and installed apt after reading a few threads here.
I've tried apt-get upgrade apache and this downloaded 155Mb of rpms and seemed to install those OK.
