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 know this is a total n00b question, but please help. I usually ran my server on RedHat 8, but got tired of messing with it, so I installed slack 9...how in the heck do you get apache to start? I want it to load at start up as well as an FTP daemon, and SSHD...but I am used to the "Services" gidget from RH... I have know idea how to start things from terminal or KDE 3.1. I know that Apache is installed...just don't know how to load the daemons...please let me know!!
Ah that did it! thanks! now I have a new prob tho...I am trying to set up a mud server, and it needs telnet, but every time I try to telnet in, it refuses connection? Any ideas here? Do I need to start the ftpd too?
Do I need to download the telnet server package or should it be on my disk? If it is on the disk then it is already installed as when I loaded Slack I chose the "Install Everything" option. So, everything it has to offer is on there.
Originally posted by ne21 Umm...there is no /etc/xinetd.d dir...what is up with that?
What's up with that is that Slackware uses /etc/inetd.conf -- if you want telnet, open inetd.conf and uncomment the line that starts the telnet server. It is disabled by default because it is a security risk, but if you need it, you need it.
