online instruction

Time for me to break down and learn Linux.

I have a webserver (RHE) that my business runs on and I'm always at the mercy of people who just don't seem to get the job done.
Nothing super fancy, just ecommerce and basic services.

Right now I have the old server (5+yrs) and hired someone to move it (vbulletin, oscommerce, interchange, www, mail, etc) onto a new one. That's been going on for nearly a year w/ zero progress. Meanwhile I'm paying for two servers every month.
It's time to do it myself.

I've got a linux OS running on my local workstation (Fedora) under vmware, I need a good online course which will take me from the basics thru webserver admin.

While I'm not opposed to paying for it, a free one would be nice.

I found this one but it seems a little sparse on the server stuff.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Some good links thanks.

I was sort of hoping for a 'course' format with exercises and self-tests and what not.

This may be a good background read: clarifies the diffs between MS-Win and Linux.
If you're going to run your own server, this is worth bookmarking and readings bits as you need them.
