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.

mysql: 4.0.15 standard
This setup is running, but I don't fully understand all the configuration settings have - most of them I copied from somewhere out on the net.
I don't have a problem with removing the sendmail, procmail, and imap to get it to where I want to.
I want to get a mail server up and running that doesn't need to have a system account for every user, and if possible, I'd like the authentication to be done against MySQL.
I did some looking around and have seen PostFix as a replacement to sendmail, and Cyrus IMAP (which requires Cyrus SASL, which somehow should be able to be configured to go against MySQL) instead of the imap that comes with RedHat, but damned if I can find anything that gives me a clear, straight forward installation instructions for getting it to my final state.
Can someone post some links or advice? Maybe a different and easier configuration?
