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 to moniter a Novell network and am new to this, luckily, I am not the only one working on it. I need to check on the security of the network, and want to know if I can get some software that is used to collect passwords and mapping tools that could potentially be used to attack my network. Is there anything like that?
Keep in mind that using a vulnerability scanner isn't the only part of doing a security assessment. There three types of vulnerabilities are software, configuration, and hardware. If you only check for software vulnerabilities then your assessment will be incomplete. There should also be policy and procedure reviews, so don't just scan your network with Nessus and consider yourself secure.
