I am quite new to linux and have been using Linux Mandrake 8.1. I plan to create a server and would like to know of any books that either I can download or purchase (an isbn # would be preferable) which would be relevant for the mandrake distro.
I would like a book that is quite easy to understand (for a novice) and I would if possible like to to information about:
Provide a general understanding of linux.
Installing software - both globally (all users) and locally (individual users).
Setting up Samba
Setting up a mail server
Installing & configuring hardware.
And backing up data on a linux server.
I realise that you can most probably get a book for each topic, but could any of you recommend any books which would be useful. I don't mind getting books that I can download.
I would also be interested in which books you use and whether they might be useful
Any information would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
