Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Just tried the sarge netinst.iso and am unable to get DHCP working during
install. I skipped the network setup and installed the base system. I know I got DHCP on other distors working. Is there some way to configure this, but then DHCP should be just there right?
Tried this to no avail.
I wonder if I should go with a stable install. I think there is a bug with the test release and DHCP.
I imagine a stable .iso will give me everything other than the 2.6 kernel option, which I don't want anyway.
Can I just use the smallext net install? rather than the giant siize isos? the software after apt will all be the same as the sarge test right?
The older net installes don't seem to give me the reiser kernel option so I would like to try sarge test.
I just got the mini. net iso of test and will try again from scratch.
Note that the older Debian 3 isos of net install seem to wrk, but give me no kernel option.
I went with the original Sarge Test installer, but this time set bios to failsafe just in case.
DHCP works and I am now installing with Apt 650M of packages.
My soyo mobo Dragon Ultra has an onboard Lan, but was enabled before so I am not sure what failsafe did. Maybe ports/or hardware order.
Will check when I get back
Thanks FOR THE HELP dEAD pARROT.
route add default gw $NEWGW
route del default gw $CABLEGW
echo nameserver 126.96.36.199 > /etc/resolv.conf
ppp package installed,
NIC driver (eth0/1/2...) configured to get the IP & DNS info from DHCP client !
(that is usually done in GUI\config files), some older\odder distro's have no DHCP client,
or the client doesn't have the lease files located where the scripts usually expect,
on such systems the gateway can be set in the script' "CABLEGW" variable manually...
it is the def. gateway IP in this case & can be taken from 'route' (-n) command output -
in the "default" line it is the IP in "Gateway" tab.
1: unpack ('tar -zxvf ...'), this will create a directory - "nvc" with the script & files needed
2: edit the '/etc/ppp/pap-secrets' - add a new line with "user" * "passwd" (with your info, quotes needed)
3: run - e.g. './cablestart.v021 username eth0' output is obscure, check your configuration if something fails.
