How to configure a linux server?

Hi all,
im fairly new to linux. i want to setup a linux box as a server (for experience). i want to run dhcp, file, print, firewall/proxy server. Can anyone please direct me in the right direction to get started (advice, books,e-books, etc..). im currently using slackware Ver.10 on my laptop and im loving it. im basically doing this to get the experience and more understanding in linux.
