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 own several domains which I use for various purposes, I have just purchased one which I would like to use to identify my network at home. The network has around 20-25 nodes at any one time (spanning 3 or so houses) and has grown to be fairly complex. How would I go about using one of my domain names to identify the network ? ie. when someone looksup my ip address it resolves to my domain name and not my netmask assigned by my ISP (I am on a 2mb pipex dsl connection) ? a hosting company I am involved with is willing to host the domain on their name servers, but is that all I need ? or do I need to have a machine running at my end with a copy of BIND running or something ? I know companies such as UKReg offer a "web forwarding" service, but I dont want this, I would like to have control over the domain
any help would be great guys (a whitepaper or something ?), I do realise that I am probably way off with this, so I apologise if its a little confusing !
