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.

mmm - I've just ran some tests and it didn't work (to start with). When issuing a restart command to the service - the first time it stopped and started. From then on (I tried several times) it failed to stop but said it started.
I tried it on several ports including 110 (I don't have a pop server installed) and all failed.
I then rebooted into mandrake (same machine) to check something completely unrelated.
When I rebooted to RH9 I again changed the config file and issued a service restart command. This time it worked perfectly.
I have no idea why it failed the first time. It will now work on 5544, 110, 66 etc no problem.
All I can say is:
Try rebooting and change the config as the first thing you do. I'm not sure what could be causing this. If anyone has any idea I'd love to know - I'll do some digging myself if I have time.
