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 have a Toshiba Tecra 8100, which comes with a Lucent Mars winmodem.
I am running Debian Sarge 2.6.11. I downloaded efax to enable me to use my box for sending faxes, and everything worked OK with the first fax no I tried - see first log below, however, I then tried sending to another fax and found that the modem dialed out OK and connected. I could hear it dialling and sending the calling signal, then I could hear the answering signal from the remote modem, but then after the answering signal had repeated twice, the connection was dropped - see second log below.
Why should my modem communicate with one machine but not the other? The only other information I can supply is that the machine that I can connect to is an almost ten year old Panasonic, whereas the other is pretty well state-of-the-art. My
computer is pretty elderly, too, about six years old.
I have tried downloading and installing the latest driver for my modem, but the problem persists. Do I have to get another modem? I'd prefer not to as the internal modem works fine for dial-up. Has anyone else had this problem?
