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.

I am trying to install Debian 3.1 from the boxed DVD set. The PC has 2 Network Cards, one on board (Realtek 8136), and one card (Realtek 8026).
When install started I was asked to select one as my primary interface. With either one I got a message that DHCP could not be configured and essentailly asking if I did have one and pointing out that some are slow to respond. The DHCP server is Winroute on a Win98 box which this machine is destined to replace. Other PCs on the network have no problem, nor does this one under Windows 98 and previously under Mandrake 10.1. (There were other problems with Mandrake, which is why I am trying Debian). I finally configured eth1 manually.
During post install I keep getting the errror message: NETDEV WATCHDOG: transmit timed out. During APT configuration it could not connect to the Debian web site.
The PC is set up as 192.168.0.20 and Winroute is on 192.168.0.1. The DHCP scope is 2-16.
Also the PC is not pingable so I'm assuming that this is a driver problem.
Any help will be appreciated. At the moment the machine is busy installing packages.
