Linux administration skills

Budget $30 - $5000 USD
Bids 3
Average Bid $132

Hi
I planning to use Linux and I've rent a small server in order to learn how to administrate the Linux task with this box. I would like some one with instant messages to be online after we made schedual with each other to teach me how to do admin task with the server. I need some one with the following skills: Centos, Directadmin cp, Email security and spam protecttion from server side, disable unused services, server hardening and service hardening and optimization. And other tasks as well. You might be asked to write a documentation of what need to be done or learned on certain subject.
This is a private project and I don't have big budget so your amount of bid will be a deciding factor. I'm a fast learner so it won't take much of your time. The winner of this bid will work closely with me on the subject we agree upon. Once I get a hang of a certain subject then we move to another one. If you teach me well I'll give you a bonus for it. Remember I have a tight budget but if things go well I'll work my butt off to make few bucks to reward you some bonus. If you have any questions fell free to ask me as much as you like. I only work with experts who know stuff well because I dealt with lots of time waster before. This is not an experimental project for newbee. If you can not do it, please don't bid.
