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.

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.

For the past few hours i've been fooling around with Undernet's ircd. I can get everything to work fine, but the problem is i cant start the deamon as a superuser. At first it didnt bother me, but now i want to start the ircd at boot and it just doesnt want to start. What i want to know is 1- why cant the ircd be started with root, 2- is there a way to change this and if there isnt, how can i make the deamon start with a different user?
Thx in advance,
(**sorry for the duplicate post but i couldnt edit the Subject of the first post**)
Distribution: Slackware 10, Fedora Core 3, Mac OS X
is anything mentioned in the man/help pages?
It may need to be ran as a certain user, or may just need to be able to write/read/execute to certain directories.
Need more info, such as any error messages. After it attempts to start at boot, show us any relevant in your syslod (housed at /var/log/syslog but there is a 'syslog' viewer in gnome 2.2 under the system tools menu)
