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 scp a couple of files from a RedHat Linux Enterprise 4 machine to a couple of other machines (one a Mac OSX and the other a Solaris). I see the same behavior with either remote machine. I'm able to manually scp files from my Linux machine to either remote machine without using a passphrase because I set up the appropriate public and private keys on all the machines. However, when I try to scp the same files as part of a cron script I get "Permission denied". Here are the relevant lines from my Cron Log attempting to scp to a remote machine called rem. Thanks very much.
