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 a network card on an Internet gateway I'm setting up. The system has two network cards. Eth0 works fine, but eth1 is giving me problems. The card is a Linksys Etherfast 10/100 and was setup during installation using the tulip module. After a reboot (hard or soft) the card only works using the e100 module. After another reboot the card will again only work with the tulip module. Not the card since another Etherfast card operated in the same fashion.
I'm out of ideas. Maybe someone could enlighten me....
