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.

Senior Project Topic Related to Networking
I'm going to start my senior master project from next semester. I have been searching to find a good topic related to networking software. First I came accrooss Asterisk telephony, VoIP engine and tried to create some web based application using it, but I thought it wasn't a good idea for a senior project. I have had experience of socket programming in c++ and I'm familiar with basic network protocols such as TCP/IP, HTTP, SSL, SSH, IPsec, bittorrent, etc.
Recentely, I've been working on designing web applications, That's why I have been away from networking world for a while. I thought it would be a good idea to come here and ask networking experts in this site about future of networking and hot topics related to networking.
I really appreciate if you let me know about hot topics in networking so that I can find a good topic for my project.
I would love to have a Linux utility which would (reliably and consistently) do the following:
Search for hot spots and automatically connect using a list of specified priorities
If no previously configured hotspot were found, it would then automatically find one with no key and attempt to connect.
It would remember the MAC addresses of all successfull connections--to make the search process more efficient and also to build a database.
All of this behavior would be totally configurable and would happen in the background during bootup. The user would be greeted with either a successful connection or the report that none could be found.
I don't know if this qualifies as a project for your school...
well i think that your 2nd point makes your requirements somewhat lethal... but in general that's just NetworkManager... already exists mate...
If you wanted to expand on a project like NetworkManager though, the wired side of that *really* needs some work... some actual configuration options would be a start, for example control of user experience things like accepting DHCP provided name servers or not.
