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.

On my SuSE 9.0 linux box which is connect to the internet / network via a wireless netgear MA311
All these things work no problem!
But my server is not very organized. Because its my first server i just been playing about with things to make them work..
So im going to start from scratch!
My questions are:
1) How do i make Telnet (i know its not secure but there is a reason for me using it), apache and mySQL start up on boot. eg. is it possible to make a "batch" file or something thatís runs on start up?
2) How can i set-up users and administrate them? (so something like "add new user bob pass bob123password access low"
and that will add a new use with access ONLY to his home folder and also create a way of allowing him to ftp but again only into his own folder(s).
3)iv done this before but i forgot how to do it. Link to a program. so instead of navigating to file (say apache) and doing the whole /usr/local/apache2/bin/ thing.... i can just type like "web-server restart"
THANKS FOR ANYHELP!!!

(I know it's an old thread, but I didn't see any reason to create a new.)
I have some problems with this as well. I installed Apache with PHP and MySQL during the system installation, but none of them starts automatically when I boot my computer. I have to type apache2ctl start and /usr/sbin/mysqld to get them running.
I've been creating symbolic links to executables for MySQL and Apache following the LAMPS tuorial but no luck. Then I just had a better look in the YaST2 modules. I've allways been using the packages from SuSE CD's since then (if I can).
In YaST go to System and click the Runlevel editor (or something like that). In there you'll see the list of almost every installed package that runs as a demon. You'll have the option to start at boot (or not). For MySQL it runs the install_db and other necessary stuff to make it work. SuSE takes care of everything. But the packages are not up-to-date (you'l have to use Apache 1.3.29 insted of (let's say) 1.3.30 or PHP 4.3.3 instead of 4.3.4. =/
Beats creating symbolic links in /rc5.d/ /init.d/ if you ask me, at least in SuSE.
