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 just shouted myself an adsl connection rather than dial-up. I'm using a D-Link modem (DSL-302G) and have it connected to my computer via a network cable rather than USB.
It all works beautifully as long as I remember to turn the modem on before I boot Linux. However, if I'm already in Linux (RH9) then I cannot activate the network device. I am using Network Device Control (redhat-config-network 1.2.0) to try to activate, but the message "cannot activate network device etho0" is returned. I get the same as root user.
Am I using the wrong tool to try to activate the network? Do I need to configure something to enable activation after bootup?
i think ive had the same problem. but w/ a moterola modem. yea i had no idea what was going on, and i just went out and go a new netwrok card. i believe almost all D-Link network cards work w/ linux, at least mine did. if ur using a d-link card, then ion kno. and the card was only like 20bux. thats all i got
Hold your horses though. It all seems to be working now (although I've tried many times before without success). For some reason it all appears sweet now and what I've tried before in vain now seems to be fine.
I have the same problem.
i do not know what to configuer and how.
I have installed Linux RedHat-9 and I an using the ADSL broadband for windows XP ( I am using a D-link Modem), I want to setup the internet connection for Linux but I cannot as I have found that this modem Model No. DSL-302G, has no drivers for Linux.
Please guide me what should I do. I really feel so handicapped for not able to get internet on Linux.
Thanx For you patience and time.
What michaelk said worked for me. Forget the USB stuff (even for WinXP) and plug the ethernet cable in. From there all should be sweet without any installation of drivers etc. Get back to us and let us know how it goes.
