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.

For a long time, I've had a server sitting over here doing nothing. On Friday, I went to bestbuy and bought a switch and a few ethernet cables to setup a network. I aleady had a Linksys router. Plugged everything in, configured the router to give my comps a static IP.
Then I did a network install of Debian(The server's CD-Rom drive is broken)
I now have:
Apache, PHP4, Mysql4
UltimateIRCD with Anope IRC Services
Its awesome to be able to have a 24x7 server now. Out of my three boxes, its my favorite. Not to brag(Because its probably not worth braggin about), but here's the specs. So far, I'm using 310megs of space total. I could probably get that farther down but, why bother?
I know! I bought, what would normally be bare bones for w98, all the fixins for my server for less than the cost of a 2 large pizzas. That combined with the new domain name I bought, which cost less than 2 double quarter pounders with cheese, and...
Mmm... Cheese... *MasterC wonders what he was saying as he drools about cheese...
cool, I was wondering how i might go about doing that. I have a cheap system i bought for $90 and have Slackware-current install with KDE. I am completely new to linux and was wondering how I would set up Apache and all that fun stuff. The system is
Old HP Vectra VE
64 Megs RAM
3Gig IDE harddrive
I'm only looking to set up a simple low bandwidth server since I'm only hooked up to a cable internet line, (that would have a low downstream bandwidth, wouldn't it??) I want all the major web technologies (PHP, CGI, SSI, Perl), but nothing like Frontpage.
I also want to set up FTP on my system. Please help.
For any of those interested, I managed to get an install of Slack 8.1 up without a CDRom drive. Since my system had like 7 partitions, I downloaded all of the packages to one of them, did the standard floppy install and said install packages from a premounted directory. When I was done, I turned that partition into home.
cool, i got to start doing that. Since december I have gone through an entire 50 stack of cd's and only 5 of them have been something other then isos. Nice uptime. I have never really tried to leave mine on a long time. Generic fans, very loud.
