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 relatively new to Linux so I built myself a Suse 9.1 machine. So far I have Samba up and running and GCC etc installed but now I have come to try and sort out a firewall. I looked at the inbuilt Suse firewall but it confuses me. All I can see is that it allows you to block ports etc but I cannot find where you can configure certain IP addresses or subnets through on a port but block for all other ip's.
In slight desparation I have started looking at FWBuilder which looks to have a GUI interface which looks to be what I am after. The only trouble is when I try and install the rpm packages on my machine using Yast it goes through to the Yast screen but doesn't appear to actually install anything. If I run a search of the machine using Yast sure enough the FWBuilder components are nowhere to be seen.
I have doublechecked I have downloaded the suse 9.1 rpm files and also used multiple download sources for the files. There are no dependency errors coming up when i try and install the rpm's.
Am I doing anything completely stupid?
Any help gratefully appreciated.
