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.

clinet is also fedora -2 . i used # netconfig to configure dhcp client options . when i use # ifconfig , i donot get a ip from the dhcp server. i get the same old static IP which was earlier configured. why is it so ? how can i get a ip from the dhcp server on the client ? in windows , .....ipconfig /flushdns or ipconfig /renew or is used.
I don't know if this is the only way, but I always use dhcpcd which goes off and finds the dhcp server, and sets the ip and routes by itself without you having to use ifconfig. You would know better than I do where that is in fedora but give dhcpcd a try.
