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.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

I need your help. My machine has a MSN SLI motherboard with a AMD 64Bit Dual Core Processor, four 1.5TB drives, 8G memory and a build-in NVIDIA network controller. The host OS is windows VISTA Ultimate and is working great. I have install Fedora 8 and Fedora 10 guess VMs . My problem is, I can not get the network working on either guess VMs in VirtualBox 2.1.0. I tested Fedora 8 on a Dell laptop and everything including the network works without any problems so I believe there is something in VirtualBox I need to still do. I have tried configuring all four versions of the virtual network adapter hardware in VirtualBox with out any success. If anyone is running or successfully configure a network with this type of system can you please post the steps you used to get your VM network working. BTW I am posting this on both LinuxQuestions.org and forums.virtualbox.org. Thanks for any help…
1. Windows device manager it says NVIDIA nForce Networking controller
2. I have tried NAT, Host Interface Networking and also Internal Networking. In the VM when I ifconfig I get the following information:
inet addr: 10.0.2.15 Bcase 10.0.2.255 Mask: 255.255.255.0
I also can ping the host (VISTA) IP address from within the VM but can not ping or connect to the web.
Thanks, for the help you have provided. A few things I have found:
1. By editing the /etc/resolv.conf allows me to ping the net but mozilla still returns an error and can not access the internet.
2. Network Manager Applet 0.7.0 says I am not connected. Across the top of the window is a icon of two blue terminals with a red "X" at the bottom right corner. Also when I run system updater, it says there is no connection. Where can I find configuration documentation for Network Manager?
3. Each time I restart the VM the only data in resolv.conf is 10.0.2.3.
4. Just for fun I install Fedora on a real machine and all worked without any problems. I even did not have to edit resolv.conf.
