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.

Hmm.. no kitty cat. Ok.
There are a few possibilities.
1. Replace the crossover cable with another crossover that you know is good.
2. Double check the MAC address of the win box and linux inside interface. They should not be the same. Long shot but I've seen this happen before and cause packet loss.
3. Either replace the linux box inside interface nic and / or the win xp nic or connect them to different computers (a laptop works nice) and see if you still get packet loss or which one is the culprit.
4. If you have service pack 2 installed on your XP box try turning off the firewall for testing purposes. May require a reboot.. stupid windows.
