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 am in need of assistance with a DL380 G4 running Linux. The problem is that when the machine is under a high load, it will drop off of the network, and return to the network when the load is lowered. Has anyone else had this problem before, were you able to find a fix? Someone suggested to update the NIC driver, it just so happens HP released a NIC driver for the bcm5700 modules on May 23, 2006. I installed the new driver, but no dice, the machine still dropped from the network. If anyone can provide tips on debugging Linux, or if there's a silver bullet on a fix, any information is greatly appreciated. Additional info below:
My best to you,
