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.

My roommate and I are in the process of setting up a wireless network in our apartment, and we have 1 more computer to connect than wireless cards to connect with. However, we have ethernet cards to spare, so we decided to put an ether card in two of the machines, then bridge the connections from one machine with the wireless card and ethernet card, a la Windows XP.
Our problem is, we have no idea how to set anything like that up. This machine (the one with both a wireless and ether card in it) accesses the rest of the network cleanly, its currently using network modem resources to post this request. It (and the machine next to it) can ping each other fine, but the second machine cannot access network resources. Any help would be much appreciated!
We're currently running SuSe 9.0 on this machine and Slackware on the other. Both are kernel version 2.4.2
To get the two ethercards to communicate, we had to set static IP addresses to both machines. Is this our solution or our problem?
