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 Debian3.0 computer which I use with a dialup account to surf the 'net with. It has a PCI modem which works fine. Just for fun I added a netcard, and a crossover cable to allow me to share data and a printer with a win2k computer.
Dialup and the LAN worked together briefly, but now when my LAN is up, Firebird can't resolve websites, they just timeout. I have to manually take eth0 down to get the www to work.
And then I 'ifup eth0' to print or listen to mp3s.
Needless to say, I'd like to both browse the internet and listen to music at the same time, not to mention print stuff without having to save it locally first.
Are you using firebird in Windows or Deb. You may want to check out your routing table
Win: route PRINT
But it sounds like you are trying to surf from Deb and listen your mp3s from a windows share. At first glance I would say it is a routing issue. When you dial up make sure your routing table is looking at the dialup connection before your ethernet connection.
It has worked (both ppp and LAN) before, but I rebooted Deb for some reason and it didn't work after that. I think if have to reboot again, I can get it woking, but it seems like a pain in the butt to have to do this stuff...
My issue that causes me to rebbot is unrelated the routing thing--i think. Anyway sometimes if I forget to disconnect, and I leave pppd running for a while unattended my modem becomes unresponsive and doesn't give the line back to the phone.
plog shows an exit on my pppd session, but there is no dialtone when I pick up the phone. Maybe I could reset the serial port somehow...
