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 was wondering if anyone can give me a plausible rationale why the yum tomcat installation makes more mess over system directories than a possum shot at a short range with a sawed off shotgun ?
i am spending my whole day getting used to where different components are. i mean, why can't the ENTIRE package, everything in it, be under a SINGLE directory, e.g. /env/tomcat and under it have conf, bin, webapps, etc. rather than this:
could they have made it more complex ? if you just download the tar.gz and do make, it installs it all in one directory, provided you don't change the default settings. however, my boss says that yum uses the "standard" configuration and we should use that to avoid deviating from the norms for the sake of future maintenance.
can someone please rationalize why my life has, all of the sudden, become so much more complicated than having it all under the same directory ???
