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.

heres the deal. I need a server. for starters a samba server. the computer im trying to install on is pent. 100 w/ 64mb ram and a 20gig drive. (a nice piece 'o crap)
i tried to install mandrake 8.0 1st. Everything goes fine except a third of the way into the actual install i get an error saying "cant install libgtkxmhtml1-1.2.13-1ndk.i586" <---does anyone know what the hell that is? or what packagage its in so i can not install that package? So the install continued but needless to say it doesnt work.
I then tried red hat, which did install but I dont want red hat. I've had problems installing samba. actually a file that is supposed to be in their /etc/inetd.conf doesnt even exist. but ill ask bout that in a diiferent section.
ive also tried slackware and had a couple problems, but i need something more newbieized than slackware.
Anywho, I really want mandrake. does anyone know anything bout that error. if not any ideas on how i should go bout this? like is their another better distro i havent tried? or does anyone know anything bout that /etc/inetd.conf that i need to setup samba?
inetd was replaced by xinetd a year ago or so i think. rh71 and md80 both use xinetd. but samba is not controlled by that, it is a service in it's own right.
that file is something for gtk (gnome tool kit - a window graphics thing). You shouldn't need it too much, certanily no if you don't want X. you should have the option to not install the package upon setup.
