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.

The below is bit of an epic, but to cut it short, can BNC & RJ45 networks cooperate/communicate?
As I'm finding it impossible to find a PCI BNC network card, I'm wondering if it is possible to have a mixed BNC & RJ45 network?
The current setup is all BNC, like this:
..............................(56k, or ADSL*)
* ADSL not yet available here, but may be in the next year or so, hence if we got ADSL, I'd like to have the linux router as a firewall.
Also have separate laptop, but I have to switch the phone connection from 'Duron' to it, which obviously disconnects all the others from the internet, which isn't great.
Although all the cards also have RJ45 sockets, I don't want to have to rewire the house for RJ45 to a fancy central router.
'Duron' is going to be upgraded and its new motherboard will have an RJ45 socket. I would take its PCI BNC card and put it in Zippy_2 (well zippy is just getting the old duron internals so can't use the ISA NIC). So here's my new network setup idea:
** One ISA for BNC, one ISA for RJ45 for 'Andrew' & one PCI for RJ45.
I'd like all the computers to be on the same network and be able to get on the internet, play actionQ2, and share files & printers. Could someone let me know if this is possible or is it a crazy thinking?
If I can find a PCI BNC card, I could maybe do this:
**** 'Andrew' would have RJ45 on the motherboard to connect to 'Laptop', and an PCI card for the BNC line network.
EDIT: NOTE THE DOTS "........" I HAD TO PUT IN BECAUSE AFTER I POSTED IT SPACES WERE REMOVED. THE LINES OF DOTS ARE JUST THERE TO PUSH THE "|" THINGS INTO THE RIGHT PLACE TO SHOW THE NETWORK CONNECTIONS.
