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.

As of today I am a newbie to the linux world, as I received a gift for a recent birthday of a book packaged with Fedora Core 1 However the book covers basics and not really troubleshooting.
I have had the excess parts from upgrades to build the system for a while and have been interested in learning to use linux. Thus you will find some hardware items less than current.
I have installed the Fedora Core 1 linux and packages that came with the guide and got as far as networking, I am on a network with 2 XP HE computers connected to a linksys BEFSR41 now on the XP boxes it's plug N surf..
I need help setting up fedora. The on board networking is detected its a VT(several numbers) Rhine II or to XP a VIA T10/100 Ethernet port, and it is shown in the network setup as eth0 it will not auto detect dhcp, it fails during boot and if I insert an ip i.e 192.168.102 and 255.255.255.0 and refresh It will show active and I can connect to the router setup, via 192.168.1.1 but not the internet.
I am working within gnome under the user account and yes have and know the root password, I know not square one what to do, and would appreciate a very newbie ish hand held walkthrough.
You seem to have no default route (the route that packets take when there are no more specific matching rules). In Fedora I think you can set this by running:
For your network it will most likely be 192.168.1.1
After you have set the gateway, run:
service network restart
You should then be able to at least ping external IP addresses - if you still have problems with resolving DNS names then put your ISPs DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf - the format is:
When I tried to run netconfig in the root terminal there are 4 entries ipadress netmask default gateway and primary nameserver. I enter 192.168.1.102 as the ip address b/c my other 2 pc's are assigned 192.168.100, and 101 by dhcp. anyway it generated the netmask 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.254 and primary nameserver 192.168.1.1
A ping -c1 184.108.40.206
