As someone already said, start with the Handbook. But really if you
want to learn, you can just try it and see how far you get :-) I did
this myself, actually, but on Linux. At one point, I had FTP, SSH,
SMTP, DNS, HTTP, POP, IMAP, HTTPS, MySQL, VNC, X, and Webmin servers
running. Needless to say, this was a *HUGE* security hole. But I learned
a lot! :-)
