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 have a 1998 gateway which i put Fedora Core 2 on. I previously had Mandrake 9, and i was successfully able to connect to the internet thru KDE. I decided to try to Fedora with GNOME for a change. I have looked at how- to's and i follow the instructions, and when i click activate on the network configuration window, it says activated, but there is no activity on the modem. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I use Gnome as well, but found Kppp to be the easiest way to configure my connection. After that the network configuration app also worked fine, but without the info on network activity that Kppp will give you.
I'm not sure if this is the kind of network monitor app you're looking for, but In FC4/Gnome, you can activate a network monitor (the Windows-like twin monitor icon) by right-clicking in the main panel bar (the one with Applications Places Desktop in it), then selecting "Add to Panel". You'll be presented a list of apps to add; select "Network Monitor".
i dont know weather i didnt install that package, or weather its not in FC2 or something, i only have 2 Email clients, an irc client, a messaging client, and a web browser, is there a command to open it under bash.
I dont use FEDORA CORE 2. I use FEDORA CORE 4. You can try internet-druid to create and active your connection using the modem you have installed in your system. type internet-druid from your command prompt, and go through the step by step procedure given by the wizard to establish a connection
