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 registered a domain, and after a week, it still said Cannot Find Server on one computer, but the linux computer could access it fine. My network is setup so my Cable runs into the Linux computer running Mandrake 9.1, then I have a cable running into a Windows 98SE computer. Everytime a site changes a DNS, I have to reboot my Linux computer so the site can be seen on my windows. Is there any other way so I wouldn't have to reboot it?
Yeah, I can see my domain everywhere, except the windows computer. After I rebooted Linux, the domain worked fine, and I can see everything. Only thing is, I don't like having to reboot the computer so I can see the DNS changes.
Instead of rebooting the linux box, you should try just rebooting the nameserver on it. Not entirely sure how you'd do that on Mandrake, but I bet there is some fancy GUI tool . On Red Hat you'd type "service named restart" or "rndc reload" depending on what version you are running...
