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.

Open terminal and type "/sbin/ifconfig -a" without the quotes. It should list eth0 and lo as your two ethernet devices, although it could list others. If you do not see an eth0 then linux is not recognizing your network card. Assuming it's there make sure it has a valid IP address from your network. If it does not then try "/sbin/ifconfig eth0 down" then type "/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up". Check to see if it lists a valid IP. If not then check with your network administrator and make sure they readily release IP addresses via DHCP. They might have MAC filtering and are not releasing an IP to your pc b/c it is not known.
