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'm trying to establish an LDAP over SSL connection to a Windows SBS 2003 server for domain authentication within an Apache server, so that when Browsers connect to the apache pages they have to enter a Domain password/account.
I have the basic LDAP client authentication and binding working, but not over SSL.
I've tested LDAP(ssl) from a PC client to the server and that works ok.
I know from Wireshark traces that the bind is failing, because of a "Unknown CA" error showing in the capture. This should be because the SBS server is self-signed, and the RHLE5 won't have the Root CA listed as an authority anywhere.
So I know I need to add the Root CA to the RHEL5 server somewhere, but I'm not sure where. As this involves Apache and ApacheLDAP modules, where does it go? or is there a more generic place that RHEL5 stores root certs (like Windows does in the registry) ?
After I get that working, then I'll need to add a certifcate to Apache (signed by the SBS Root CA) so that the Browser <> RHEL5 Apache connection can also be done over SSL, securing the whole path. But one problem at a time..
Any help appreciated.
Theres no Samba config implemented for this yet, and I hope I don't have to..
