This tailored course provides the bright newcomer to Linux Administration with
an overview in just two days. Starting off with a system build which introduces the key
structural elements of Linux, the new administrator goes on to learn to to install extra
software, to set up networking (including a brief look at services such as firewall and
DNS), and to add user accounts to the system. Backup and restore are important subjects,
and we'll also briefly cover setting the Linux system up as a webserver - perhaps the
most common of daemons to run on Linux systems.
Basic Linux or Unix knowledge - directory handling, file copying, deleting
editing etc. If you don't know these subjects, consider attending our Linux Basics
