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 have a server that is running Suse-9.0, and by default is has all these services that I know I shouldn't be running. The ones that I'm most worried about are SunRPC, and X11. I have been a network security buff for a while, although I don't claim to know it all, I know just enough to get myself into trouble! Anyway, I have found myself in a windows end users position. Previously I have been dependent on Bastille for linux, and its gui to harden and configure my systems services. Well thats not the unix way to do things, yeah I know. Well it turns out that Bastille hasn't made a new version for suse 9.0 yet. So I'm going to have to harden this server the hard way. Manually. I have used the yast utility to try and find a way to disable, or uninstall these services, but I'm not having much luck. Does anyone have any links to good docs or how-to's about hardening Suse-9.0. I'm not having much luck since Suse keeps all their files and stuff in weird places.
