You should really get some linux administration books before trying to admin a linux box. It's the same as driving a tractor trailer. You don't just hop on and know how to work everything.

I've never seen that process so you can just do:

kill PID#

The PID# is the first column.

That high process was root compiling something.... probably an installer from layer1 or layer2 (entirely CPanel related)

Again, hook yourself up with a linux book.
Barnes & Noble has a decent fleet.

Yeah, or goto amazon and look for highly rated linux books. Redhat unleashed is pretty good.

a good type a book would be that deals strictly with command prompt... red hat books that deal with interface are useless because most likely you have to SSH into your box....

IRC is your friend :) This is where i started and still go for linux Q's.

www.mirc.com &-- a good irc client
irc server: irc.openprojects.net
channels: #linpeople, #debian, #freebsd, #redhat, #perl

all those channels are good channels. The reason i have a debian channel in thier also is because thats the biggest channel on that server. usually it's up around 200+ people in their while redhat is usually around 60 and linpeople around 100+. Just make sure you dont tell them you use redhat tell your well into the problem or they'll laughf at you.

This server used to be irc.linpeople.com. It's basically the open gnu linux help server or somthing like that. I've been on it for 6 or 7 years now. It will beet the hell out of all the other servers like undernet, efnet, dalnet. Most of the linux channels on those are just full of dicks that say &man this& and &man that&

Hope that helps too.
