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 am very new to Linux, in fact I am downlaoding it now... I have Windows Server 2003 and really like it but I am wanting to expand my knowledge... What do I need to know the differenced in the two? I am very comfortable with the GUI interface and that is what is scaring me so far. How easy is it to set up the web server and FTP in Red Hat, I know IIS in Server very well. What do I set my other machines on the netwrok to like to allow access to the New server, right now my Windows Server I am using workgroups. I have one network that I will trying all this on and if all goes well will move to my other network. My server will be used for file sharing, Web server, FTP server would really like VPN (could not get it to work in Windows Server) As much help as possible would be great.

Before you make changes to a config file eg "httpd.conf" copy to a file called "httpd.conf.orig". Once you have a working copy then before you make any more changes then save it as "httpd.conf.good". This will save you having to rebuild your config files from scratch if you make a mistake.
