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.

is there a way to check out which version of a webserver im running. Im trying nmap, and ethereal only thing i get is http/1.1. I want something else for output, like apache v.23.4 ex...is there any other program, or options i should set?
Uhh, I'm assuming you meant remote version detection? What version of nmap are you using? Versions greater than 3.50 have built-in application version detection and is rather effective (nmap -A host). You can also just do a simple banner grab with telnet:
telnet ip.of.host 80
*If that works you should get something like this:
Connected to 192.168.0.3.
Escape character is '^]'.
*You'll be at a blank line, now type this and hit enter twice:
GET / HTTP/1.0
You should get the banner plus raw html. In the banner, look at the Server info
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
