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.

firefox says that it its unable to connect to the website.
I can't go to any website.
I replaced Windows with SimplyMepis a week ago and haven't been able to use the internet since.
Is this a problem with Firefox or simplymepis?
I was hoping installing a router would make the internet work.
I can't tell you much about the computer though, I put in a new motherboard except that the processor is Celeron D 3.33GHz, pcchips P23G motherboard with stock emachines everything else. Lan card is built into motherboard.
The "slash" in the command chain "lspci | grep Ethernet" is not called a slash, it is a vertical-bar, commonly
called "pipe" by un*x folks, because it means "pipe the result of the first thing into the input of the second.
In this case, it means that we don't want to see the whole report of "lspci", but just the lines that say something
about "Ethernet". The attempt here is to find out what sorts of Ethernet (lan) hardware your motherboard has on it.
Another line of attack on this problem is to look at how your routing is set up on this machine. Once we see what kind of network device is present, the next two questions will be to see the output of this command
and this one
The first one will tell us about how the Ethernet device is configured now (in particular, what address has been
set up on it), and the second one will tell us how the operating system is planning to get your Internet packets
out to the Internet. Unless all this is set up right, you haven't got a prayer of connecting successfully to the 'Net.
Well, thaaat's interesting. If nothing came through when you tried appending "grep Ethernet", that means there
is nothing in the lspci report about an ethernet device. Either it is spelled differently, or your Simplymepis
version cannot see the ethernet device you have on your system. If you don't understand the stuff that came out of the "lspci" command, post it here, and I'll try to interpret it.
