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.

the connections from c-24-22-148-xx.h are me. The bercea is not nor are the aol connections. I removed the bercea account and I also changed the root password. Here are my problems now faced...
ps, netstat, pico and who knows what other commands are not available. I rsynced them from another server but I cannot connect to the internet from any machine on the network.
ping works, ssh works, ftp works, smtp,pop3,imap etc all work so those ports are allowing through traffic (both ways incedentally) I can connect to the webserver on this machine from itself and from all other machines on the network but absolutely no machine will connect to any other site on the outside and no outside machine will connect to this one on port 80.
After your system is compromised you don't know which executables are yours. Unplug it from the Net, copy all your important data (which may be broken, btw, so also check backup...; it may be a good idea to compare with a number of backups). Reinstall. Period.
Put it online only after you have all patches installed and after checking the configuration.
I know it requires much time, but you don't seem to have another option.
