Ethernet help w/Red Hat 9 & Win. XP
I just purchased "Red Hat Linux 9 UNLEASHED" and have spent the past few days learning the basics of using Linux.
My computer is a Dell Dimension L433c, with a 433 MHz Intel celeron processor, 95 MB of RAM, and a 20 GB hard drive. I currently have my hard drive partitioned 50% for DOS/Windows, 47% for Red Hat Linux 9 Publisher's Edition, and 3% for swap.
For Internet I have Comcast High-Speed cable, connected to our 3 other computers, which are running Microsoft Windows XP. My network card is a Linksys 10/100 EtherFast LNE100TX. For the past two days I have been trying to connect to the Internet. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for establishing a connection. Please take into consideration that I have been using Linux for about 6 days.
I do have prior experience programming with BASIC, Pearl, C#, C, C++, and assembly, so I wont have any problem compiling any source code. I am not however, very familiar with Linux's Programming resources, so I would prefer instructions written with the novice Linux user in mind, whenever possible. But to be honest, any suggestions for projects, books, or online resources that would help to become familiar with the system would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
