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 having a problem with my DSL connection on my SuSE 9.0 FTP distribution. I am able to successfully connect to my DSL provider (SBC DSL). The connection is solid and stays up for a random period of time from 1 - 3 days. It then appears that SBC boots my connection.
I would like to configure my SuSE box to reconnect when I get booted, so that I can maintain a fairly persistent connection. Any ideas?
Once the connection is down, I typically just start kinternet to "dial in" again, but eventually the connection will be terminated.
Here are the messages log entries detailing the connection termination:

ok , you should add your nameserver = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx in your resolv.conf and you should change another file which located in /etc/sysconfig/network ,something like this. i forget the name of the file. check it ,and change the configuration in the file , not change your resolv.conf again. or you won't connect internet next, because resolv.conf will be changed again.
