A good place to start?

I had a great time at the meeting this week, and was quite fascinated the wealth of knowledge that was in that room at one time. However, I (along with a few others I'm sure) am looking for a good place to start. There is no shortage of information about Linux and the various Distros that are available. But once you have chosen a distro and get it installed, whats next? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

On a side note, my primary interest for using Linux at this point is for Server Administration, however I do plan to use it for desktop/laptop OS as well in the near future.

Thanks in advance!

I received this reply via email and wanted to share it with the group!



Here are a couple of sites that helped me out when I was new to Linux.

http://linuxcommand.o...­ -- Great tutorial for getting yourself
familiar with the commandline.

http://www.linuxhomen...­ -- Good starting place if you want
to learn to configure common linux services (Apache httpd server, mysql,
iptables, etc). The instructions were geared more towards RedHat/fedora
last time I checked.
