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 am a very new 'noob' to Suse Pro 9.3. I previously used 2 USB bluetooth adapters to share an Internet connection using 2 XP Pro computers and everything worked pretty good.
I have a PC in my bedroom with a non expensive CompUSA branded USB Bluetooth adapter and my other PC has a D-Link DB-120 USB adapter with a LAN connection to a cable modem through a Linksys wired router. I had a solid Net connection to both PC's and could get on the internet using the Bluetooth connection. OBEX, Network Access, PIM...etc is configured and I can clearly see both PC from either end.
I installed Suse Pro 9.3, plugged in the USB Bluetooth and Suse found it ok. I can see my remote PC, Obex..etc is ok. Before I spend more time trying to configure the TCP/IP settings to get Firefox to a home page, am I going to get this configuration to share the internet connection? Like I said, I do have a Bluetooth connection and I can see both PC's at either end but on the Linux PC I didn't see network access as a local service like I do on the XP box in the Widcomm Bluetooth Software.
I can answer all configuration questions as needed. If Bluetooth is not going to be possible to browse the web on the Suse PC then I will go wireless LAN and get a new wireless router.
Though not exactly easy to configure, I did have the XP machines working fine and everyting wasn't too painful to configure. I was getting about 400 kbs transfer speed and I was happy with that.
Like I said, I am a noob. I could use a step by step instruction set on getting Bluetooth configured. I would like it to run everytime I turned the Linux PC on. Of course the whole keystroke, enter lines of data thing has me very confused right now. Just looking for a "Yes, here's how" or a "Nope, Bluetooth isn't going to get you on the net with Linux".
Well, I got fed up with the bluetooth and got a wireless Linksys card. It took me days to find the info to get it working correctly. It was so easy in XP to get the Bluetooth to share an internet connection.
