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.

Here is a question for ya, I am working trying to learn MySQL and PHP and have all kinds of error working with mysql, it would be helpful to have a logfile for mysql that might shed light on what I am doing wrong, it is not just one thing or I would post that for help, it is just me learning yet more about a computer, but I think it would help to have a log file. Does MySQL have log files that log errors? And where would I find it? Thanks.
Ok thank you for the info, slowing down the system is not a problem as of right now, It is mainly a system used for development and testing, it will be a couple of months before it goes live. And I wanted to see what was being passed to the databases so the logging should give me what I wanted. Thank you for your fast replies.
For the servers I work with mostly redhat 7.2 that is what I am using that I was asking this question about, but in general I work troubleshooting windows all day long, and my own machines run win 95, 98, me, 2000, xp, redhat 7.2, mandrake 8.1, solaris 8. and yes I do have all of those running at the same time on different machines. I would love to go all linux but unfortunatly Bill Gates pays my paycheck every week, not literally but seeing that I spend all day every day troubleshooting windows I like to thing that he is paying me, so as long as that is what I am doing for a living I have to keep up with all the windows products.
