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 trying to find out if it is possible to put together a system that will act as a print server for a very large scale copier/printer. I'm probably not versed enough to give the proper details but, I'll try.
I work with a Xerox DocuTech 135 which already has a RedHat system connected for extended storage of digital jobs. I would like to replace the very old DOS based computer it has for sending digital jobs in to the copier.
I have seen that the copier does has a specific IP address and uses FTP for the extended storage. However, the DOS system uses proprietary Xerox software to serve the copier a file format called InterPress.
There are systems for sale that will serve jobs to this machine but, the lowest price tag is about $5,000. These systems are generally Sun Solaris based and have something to do with installing a LPD/LPR driver in the other computers of the network. If there was a Linux distro or package that would be able to interpret InterPress and use FTP to the copier's IP, I'd love to try to see if it would work.
