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 a nvidia nforce network controller. I have tried installation script which is published at producters page(www*DOT*nvidia*DOT*com/object/linux_nforce_amd64_1.0-0310*DOT*html), but it can't be useful...
Distribution: Slackware & Slamd64. What else is there?
Slackware doesn't have hardware discovery unlike some other more automagical distros. If you look in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf you should see a place to configure eth0. If you use DHCP you can just set USE_DHCP to "yes" If not, you have to fill in the other stuff.
The network is supposed to get started automagically from rc.inet1
Both these scripts should be marked executable.
I don't remember running netconfig, I think I just edited these scripts and used mostly the defaults. It was a 2 minute job.
