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'm just installed Fedora Core 2 on a machine and I am having all kinds of trouble connecting it to the internet.
First off, my cable modem comes into a Linux mini-ITX box (running Fedora Core 1 and configured as a Router/Firewall for now). Then both of my computers are connected via a hub to that machine.
When I run Windows on the machine with Fedora installed, all is well. My laptop, which also runs Windows works great as far as accessing the internet goes. But the new Fedora install can't connect.
I can "ping 192.168.1.1 -b" and get responses (that IP being the address of the Router), but when I ping anything else it returns a "Network is Unreachable error"
I tried to do a "nslookup yahoo.com" and it did nothing, so I think my problems are with DNS, but using the GUI Network Configuration Utility, I think all the settings are right, those being that the Primary DNS and DNS Search paths are 192.168.1.1. The IPs are assigned via DHCP from the Router, and that seems to be working alright.
The only other piece of information I know to offer is that when I ran "/sbin/route -rn", it showed the Gateway as 0.0.0.0, and looking at what others have written on these forums hasn't yielded a good solution to be able to solve that.
Any help is appreciated, and please know that I am still rather new to Linux, so detailed instructions if any will be most helpful.
