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.

Linux newbie here. I have a customer that is interested in a new email server. They are currently using Groupwise and are interested in moving from GW to MS Exchange. I want to be able to give them a Linux option to choose from just for kicks and grins. What would you guys recommend?
Ewww. It co-mingles with Exchange? I guess I understand why they would want to do that but I am looking for a UNIX/Linux server that behaves like Exchange but isn't Exchange or communicates with Exchange.
If Linux is going to make penetration into the business world someone needs to come up with this type of server ASAP.
Lots of good commercial Linux Groupware servers. (Note, this is important, do you want GroupWare or Mail Server.. Exhange calls itself a mailserver, but that's a minomer.) Lotus Notes and Domino Come to mind.... (Lotus Notes is supported on Linux via Wine as a client.)
Also worth Noting, if you client is small, and doensn't need WAN capable groupware. (say,, roughtly 20 clients on a Lan). I strongly suggest TIme and Chaos,, It's not expensive at all, and works *really* well. All data is concurently shared over a network file share. Nothing fancy, it just works, is easy to use, and has all the features (and more) people like of Outlook and friends. There's no need to purchase enterprise sorftware for small workgroups.
Yes, it does, do a quick search on Google and check it out. We've been using it in our small office for a few years....
They've just added an E-mail client. so together with the e-mail and T&C, you have a complete Outlook replacement, then all you need is a mail server to send/receive e-mail. Any of the Linux Distros should serve well for this purpose. (Note, Time and Chaos is a Windows program. I haven't tried running it in Wine yet). But don't just take my word for it Download T&C and try it out.
