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 recently did a fresh install across my LAN in order to upgrade to Slackware 10.1. Everything is running fine except for networking. I have 3 computers on my LAN. Two are perminantly connected to a switch and one is a laptop which I connect occasionally. All of these machines are set to static IP with no router or gateway in the way. I have an internet connection that uses PPP (dial-up). The ppp networking works fine. I am able to ping each card on the local machine but when I try any thing other than the local card I recieve a "destination host unreachable" error. I did install DHCP on two of the machines for future broadband usage but the DHCPD is not up. I checked with "ps -aux" and top. The hosts.allow and hosts.deny files are empty. If after reading the following anyone can recommend something else to try I would GREATLY appreciate it. Previously this network was running freebsd with the same configuration and worked right from the get go, so it should not be any type of hardware issue. Here is my /etc/hosts file.
