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 hope someone can answer a question for me. This is driving me nuts. I have a Red Hat 6.2 system. Works great except for one thing. I have a crontab routine that does a system backup. It tars what I need to a large file, then ftps the tarfile to another (windows) box on my network. The files go anywhere from 20MB to 100MB. Usually it works fine, but every once in a while the network connection goes off to a distant land never to return. I can access the Linux system from the keyboard attached to it, but it no longer appears on the network (no ping, no web server, no ftp, etc). I reboot the machine and things are fine again.
FIrst, where can I look to find out what is going on? None of the logs
I looked at tell me anything.
Second, if I can't get around this problem, is there at least a command
I can issue to get the network going without a reboot, one that I could
schedule with crontab until I can upgrade the system?
