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.

So laugh at me I haven't done much cool. The only thing I'm proud of is getting updatedd to work under Fedora. It kept giving errors about directory's not existing, I added a line to change directory's to the top, it worked. And the other thing I did to it I don't know why it worked. Because updatedd made you manually input the IP I hated it. I changed it to automatically figure out the new IP.
-- a mail server that uses fetchmail to grab my pop3 mail every 5 minutes, runs it through clamav, procmail, spamassassin, then dumps it to /home/davis/Mail where I can check it using Mutt over a SSH session from anywhere.
-- using nget and a few "config" files to automatically download the latest newsgroup headers, search them for things on my list, and then download them .. all cron'd to run at 1am. No more wasted time going through newsgroups anymore
-- scripting almost everything I can. (see example above). from nightly backups, to pulling pictures off my digital camera, running them through imagemagick to resize them and create thumbnails, then wrapping html around them and putting them in my kids website directores.
-- oh, hosting all of my personal websites from my house .. and one for a guy that pays me for hosting.
-- running snort off a second nic that's tied into a hub that sits inbetween my cable modem and my wireless router. I love going throug ACID and seeing the latest MS worm trying its best to bury itself in my network
-- doing everying in console: mp3s (mpg123), mail (mutt), news (nget or slrn), p2p (giFT), image conversion (image magick), installing software (emerge or apt-get), aim (ntaim), irc (epic) .... etc
I could go on and on but this list is already long enough.
nothing really cool... I can't get most of the thing working d00h...
1. managed to run YARE (ragnarok server)
2. get most of my hardware working (damn.. this is hard)
I would like to run counter-strike on my system but always get errorrs
