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.

installed Vipuls Razor yesterday on RH9, havenít had a chance to configure it yet, not sure if thats a good idea...first thing that happened was i couldnít log on as root, a re-boot fixed that but then the ftp service stopped working - not good as our EDI orders are stripped & sent to the AS400 using ftp, found the culprit to be the xinetd service was hogging port 21. stopped it, started ftp then restarted xinetd which jumped onto port 110 - which was also good , we started getting mail to the clients again!
my question is how does one make sure port 21 isnít hogged by xinetd in future if the server is re-booted again...can ftp be configured to start before xinetd at startup?
also, how does one know what is installed on a RH server? for instance im trying to configure spamassassin with sendmail and have no idea if procmail is installed or not, there is a .gz file and a couple of example files that donít tell me much, the command "service procmail" gives output unrecognised service, that would mean its not running but does it also mean its not installed?
