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'm very new to this whole Linux world, and my project for a school independant study is to set up an Apache server on my RedHat machine. I have this great little window that just has me typing in names and some other info, but I don't know what is what. Hostnames, servernames, e-mails...aaahhh . I've tried finding tutorials and other help pages, but none of them seem to be the right thing. Either they're 3 years old, and Apache is now set up differently, or it's all in techno babble that I don't understand. Sorry to be so needy, but HELP!
I guess you need a book about networking in general and then about Apache... My suggestions: "Network Administrator's Guide" (or a similar title) and "Apache" from O'Reilly (the "Network.." book can be downloaded for free for sure, the second one - I don't remember).
thanks both of you. the name is the other way around. august 11. i'm from the states. that link looks very helpful, as do the books sound. I'll be sure to post again if I have any more problems! (which I'm sure I will, I hope not, but I will!)
okay. I am sooo lost! it's not working. I can't figure out what to do! So far this is what I have:
RedHat 8.0 that has Apache on it:
Gnome menu - Server Settings - HTTP Server brings up this little box that I am supposed to be able to configure the server with.
What do I put into the fields?? I have a server name, and a web master e-mail, then something about available addresses. When I put i n the things that I think they should be, I still can't get that Apache test page. What else do I need to do to set this up? WHere do I put my HHTP files once this is going??? Ohhhh...I am soo lost! Sorry to ask so much...I'm off to try and find it myself...
HEY! NEVER MIND! I got it working. Now I have to figure out where to put my pages and stuff...hee hee hee... IT WORKS!!

Well...I figured out how to put in my pages. and it now works!
Now my task is to set up sendmail so we can have e-mail accounts on this machine as well. Anyone ever done this? I'm following this tutorial, but don't know where to download the file, and I always get an error at the ./config line:
