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.

Hey folks - I have a WEIRD problem here. I've got an old PII debian box (Woody, 2.4 kernel) with a Myson 803 ethernet card. I've been having problems sending large emails and ftp'ing large files into the box, but downloading large files out of the box is fine. This box used to have RedHat 8 on it and did the same thing - I thought debian would fix this somehow but it didn't.

When I ftp into this box and do a get, I can download a 90 MB file almost instantly! It works great! When I try to upload - even a 200Kb file, it gets to about 5% and then the upload just hangs out forever. It's almost like some buffer gets filled and then refuses to accept any more data or something. It's really bizarre. Has anyone encountered this before?
lspci shows unrecognized chipset for ethernet device! Check if the correct module is being loaded into the kernel.
You are not getting a full duplex connection. modprobe may need manual options.
Do a rmmod and modprobe for that module and post the output. Maybe that will solve the problem.
