    You mean you would like a reading guide for Linux newbies? I will see what I can do. It may not be made soon, but I will try to make something like that for the next guide. Thanks for the idea.

    These are great! I have been going to and fro in the forums trying to figure out a logical way to read the threads. I appreciate you compiling the lists! :D

    You might want to put security above server administration. Unless you understand security, you really can't do administration. I read through server admin and things didn't connect until I read security.

    These are really great guides! A LOT of information, all very well put.

    True, but some people feel that security topics are more advanced. Therefore, reading about administration first may help provide people with more knowledge and confidence before reading about security.
