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 am setting up samba, i can ping windows to linux ip but not hostname. on linux to windows i can ping ip and hostname. have i changed the right files? the error i get when trying to enter linux through windows is "cant find path" so im thinking it might have something to do with the hostname?????????? the hostname is changed so far as i can tell. except when i try to ping the hostname. i read somewhere to change the resolv.conf but still the same error
does redhat 8 have firewall setting that i have to change???
i have just ping the old hostname and it timed out?? i must have not changed the hostname properly? anyone know the files that i have to modify for redhat 8
my network is connected through a cross over cable( only 2 comps) im not sure what type of network it is called. is it locally?
im not sure how linux dns works but its pinging my windows comp (hostname and ip). my windows comp cant ping my linux comp (hostname) but can ping the ip.
i left the dns blank in windows cause i dont know how to set it. is this the problem? and how do i set it?
if i want windows to recognise the hostname of my linux comp. could i just add the linux comp ip address in the dns text box for winxp? or does the dns have to be something different. i just want windows to recognise the hostname of my linux comp.
