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'm another one new to Linux. Just installed FC4 (wish to be consistent with the office) on an old desktop, and can't seem to get the Network to work past my router. I am trying to use a static IP, as I hope to build a basic web server. I've looked through many posts and nothing seems to be working. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
- I am able to ping the router (192.168.100.1)
- Pining an external Domain name = unknown host
- I've turned off the FC4 firewall
EDIT: I also noticed that my routing table seems off, but I'm not sure how to revise this? Result of route -n:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway GenMask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.100.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
Any suggestions? If not, is there a "wipe the slate clean and start from scratch guide" on just networking?
Thanks, in advance, for any assistance you can offer!
