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 have two boxes here, one running Suse 9.1, the other running Debian 3, and one box says it's 3AM right now, (current PST time is 9:13AM) and the other says it is 5PM. How do I go about changing the time?
tried that, told me absolutely nothing. I'm not a programmer, sysadmin, or linux geek by any stretch of the imagination, just wondering how someone else had done it. I'd like to sync the times with an NTP server, but again, no clue at all what in blazes I'm doing here.
I just got ntpd installed, and now I'm looking for a man page or a website that can help me figure out how to use it. Which files do I need to configure, is there a list of ntp servers, how do I point my windows boxes at it for their sync-ing, how do sync another linux box off of it? These are just some of the questions I have, well, the major ones at least.
