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.

hello there, i really have a big problem. i don't have any idea how to create a web server in linux...
i have created a socket server that sends hello world to it's client and another socket server that echoes the clients request..is there a way that out of these socket server, i could make a web server that accepts large files and is in http protocol..
According to my experience, i have a web server too with mandriva 2006 as operating system.
So far, mandriva is the easiest linux that i ever try & reliable enough.
If you are using mandriva, this is several things to do
- Make sure you have BIND packets (bind, bind utils, caching-nameserver)
- Make sure Apache & mysql are already installed & configured correctly
- Go to webmin, click on server
- Set it up by inputing Name server, Public IP address, reverse zone, mail, etc.
- To check is your config work or not, type in console dig @xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx domain.com any
- If the answer has no errors, you've done it right...
Install apache or Lighttpd. There are lots of howto's out there. You need to establish if your isp allows requests on port 80 which is the standard http port. Make sure you have a good firewall. You would then have to configure your internet interface to forward requests on port 80 to your public ip address to the server ip address. This is a synopsis of what is required. I have a page on my adsl server that deals with this topic and provides some useful links.
Do you need a programming howto in general, or do you have programming experience and like to advance to Linux specifics? For the latter, I found the Linux Programming Bible by John Goerzen very usefull. But you have to buy it. And as I bought it, I never searched the internet for info.
