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.

Kind of a newbish question here. We use a program called Airwave to help monitor all of our wireless APs. It is running on a cent os box. We have tivoli for our backup solution. I have the agent installed and it works fine - but I've had to reboot the machine a couple of times and every time I forget the agent does not start on startup; and I'm not exactly sure how to do this. This is how I start the agent manually:
nohup ./dsmc sched &
nohup ./dsmadmc &
How would I go about throwing this into startup? Do I have to do something in /etc/init.d/ ??
nohup stops a service dying when the controlling shell dissapears, i.e. you close a terminal window. from rc.local that is run via the init process, so never terminates until the OS itself is shut down.
rc.local is a redhat invention. as such it covers redhat, fedora and all redhat derivates back to a point of diversion... suse was originally base on redhat way back, so might be in there etc.. not sure.
