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 Linux box running a samba file server which is accessed by an XP machine. On the Linux box, I have a shared folder with documents in it. Is there a program that someone can reccommend so that I can encrypt/deencrypt the files on both my Linux and XP machines?
For example I have textfle.doc in my Linux shared folder. I want to be able to encrypt this file, but be able to access it and deencrypt it on my XP machine, make any changes that I need to make to the document, reencrypt it and send it back to the Linux file server...
bestcyrpt is one solution that works bothways, but it's hard to find a flawles solution, since it is a problem with file system.
I was using bestcrypt, but it gave me lots of BSOD on my XP when encrypting/decrypting files on samba
Ok, GPG - does that mean GnuPG? I took a look at GnuPG.org and there is so much to download. What would I need to get it working with a GUI under redhat 8.0? Also, is there any support for windows xp? I need to be able to encrypt and decrypt on both sides.
GPG (or GnuPG if you prefer) is probably your best option for encrypting a individual files. There are GUI utilities (such as WinPT) to make things easier. Search the Encryption section of the Software Directory on my site.
