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.

My first posting here, although I've come here a quite a few times. I'm having a problem with my dns setup--I think.
I can ping to ip's, but I can't connect to websites. I've checked resolv.conf, and it contains the same 3 dns entries as my router.
-Router is a Linksys wireless G with the latest firmware
-router up and running for home network with 3 windows xp machines
-I'm running on Redhat Enterprise WS
-i have a cable modem
-ethernet is 3c2000 Gigabit on board-uses driver from 3com
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
(i'm definitley sure the router is at 192.168.1.1, but what's weird is that when I can't connect to the web-based setup program from linux. it doens't give me an error when i connect to that (like any website), but it just stops loading and the mozilla status bar echoes 'done')
I'm presuming that when you say, you can ping to IPs, that you mean you can ping hosts on the Internet, and not hosts in your local network? If you can ping Internet hosts by IP but not by hostname, then it is definitely a DNS config problem. What are the enrties in /etc/resolv.conf?
sprachy: A lot of people have had trouble with the 3C2000 driver, specifically the inability to make connections (e.g. Google). Search this forum for the “3C940" to see more details. I and others have switched to the SysKonnect sk98lin driver (SysKonnect SK-98xx Gigabit). The driver can be found several pages in at
Use the “Open Source Linux” driver as a module for kernel 2.4.13 and above (install-624.tar.bz2). It takes about 10 minutes to install. You will save a lot of time to just install the new driver and dump the 3C2000.
