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.

Hi! I am currently working on my first linux distro Mandrakelinux 10.1 official I downloaded from this website. But I can't seem to get my ethernet card work. But when I boot under windows xp it just works fine (as I am using it now). At boot, there is one line which says 'Failed to bring up eth0'. I read other threads similar to my case but didn't work.
I copied several lines (with the line with 'failed' note) from /var/log/messages which I thought would be relevant:
Sep 12 15:24:40 localhost harddrake: succeeded
Sep 12 15:24:40 localhost network: Setting network parameters: succeeded
Sep 12 15:24:41 localhost network: Bringing up loopback interface: succeeded

Sep 12 15:24:41 localhost ifup: Failed to bring up eth0.
Sep 12 15:24:41 localhost network: Bringing up interface eth0: failed

Sep 12 15:25:07 localhost mailman: python startup failed
Same type of lines with the same errors were found at /var/log/syslog. And no line with error at var/log/dmesg. The ethernet card is detected with its module ne2k-pci.
Anyone pls help me with this one. Im working with this one for about a month now. thanks.
I am very much grateful for your help. Pls bear with me through this problem.
>Ok, first check to see if the ne2k-pci module is >loaded by doing:
>/sbin/lsmod | grep ne2k-pci
>It should give you two lines, one for the ne2k-pci >module and another for the card using the module >(your RealTek)
ne2k-pci 7584 0
9390 7936 1 ne2k-pci
>If it succeeds, then try:
>/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Function not implemented
>If the ne2k-pci module is not loading on startup, >but you can load it manually, try adding this line to >your /etc/modules.conf file:
>alias eth0 ne2k-pci
The file already has this line
When I entered "dmesg | grep eth0", it detected my eth Realtek-8029.
