First time Linux User
I'm trying to learn Linux. I'm currently a Senior in college, and going to graduate soon. We've learned a lot about routers, hubs, switches, IP's, TCP/IP, etc. etc, but have rarely touched the topic of Linux.
Where would a good place to start be? Especially if I want to learn about setting up servers in Linux.
Hello and Welcome!:p
To be honest, you can run a server from just about any mainstream distro out there.
Are you looking for experience that you could take into the workplace? If so, I think you might want to take a look at CentOS. RHEL clone, without the Red Hat branding.
Debian and Slackware both have a reputation for stability that does it justice when running as a server.
Welcome to the forums! :)
You can find lots of HowTos for setting up servers with some googling, but you can also check out various hard copy books about servers and networking. If you are interested in setting up your own server, we have a poll that you can check out to see what our members have voted as their favorite server distribution:
Best of luck with your goal.
