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 am a total newbie in the land of Linux and IMAP. I'm trying to configure Cyrus IMAP to run with Postfix on my Linux server, for eventual use with Squirrelmail. As such I'm getting the following error, I can't figure out how to fix (been searching the web for a long time now):
I try to execute the command:
cyradm --user cyrus localhost
the spam I get back is as follows: (after I enter the password I think I created for cyrus)
Login failed: generic failure at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i586-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/Admin.pm line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with as cyrus
My /etc/imapd.conf file looks like this:
admins: cyrus root
I am using SuSE 9.2 professional. I installed Cyrus from the RPM build supplied by SuSE via YasT.
I have tried to create a password for Cyrus by:
/usr/sbin/saslpasswd2 -c cyrus
and then entering a password
also I have run:
I use the same password each time.
So if someone can help me I'm really really lost!!! Please help me if you can
