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.

Forgive me if this has come up before, or is oft repeated, but I wasn't able to find anything on google about it and I thought I'd ask.
I'm fairly new to Linux (Red Hat 9) and after intalling sucessfully and using Linux for a while, I stopped using it for about a month because I was busy with some music projects that required my windows PC. I just recently came back to my linux box and, after logging in (as any user or root, it doesn't affect the error), I get an error message that says:
Could not look up internet address for x1-6-00-0c-41-1c-ef-48.
This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding
x1-6-00-0c-41-1c-ef-48 to the file /etc/hosts.
LOGIN ANYWAY or TRY AGAIN (my choices of button to click)
Does anyone have any insight as to what this might mean? Has anyone encountered this before? I tried editing the /etc/hosts file and I added the "x1-6-00-0c-41-1c-ef-48", though I don't think that's what it wanted me to do because it had no effect on the error message.
