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.

ok, well I removed CYGWIN and installed a Ubuntu 10.10 64bit virtual box and now I have it running, but I still can't get it to run my CGI script from my webpage that i have on Ubuntu platform. I was wondering if there was a certain way that I need to install apache or whatever to get it running correctly.
Well, I got my linux up and running, my code runs fine when I run it in the terminal, then I tried to run the HTML and have that run my CGI and it just showed the code, therefore i then installed apache2 through the terminal and that is far as I have gone. I recall that you mentioned that I needed to setup the httpd.conf file. I was wondering if you could step me through as how to do so.
I am not sure how ubuntu splits the configuration out, but there
are a few generic points you need to bear in mind (and tel us about ;}).
Are you trying to use CGI from users home, of from apache's cgi-bin
directory? The way CGI works is that the scripts AREN'T in the htdocs
directory, but in cgi-bin ... have a look though your existing httpd.conf
(and the conf subdir(s)) under it.
