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've been trying to set op an internet connection sharing on my FC4 PC, the problem is I have read a lot on these subject and I got no where my ICS doesn't work. I have 2 PC's one with FC4 (where I have the internet connection) and a WinXP PC (witch I want to connect to the internet through the ICS). I have a cable internet connection and on the FC4 PC a have 2 network cards. I installed Firestarter firewall, (enabled the ICS) and installed dhcp,
i setup my network cards like this: eth1 (where I have the internet connection) dhcp automatic configuration, eth0: IP 192.168.0.1 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
When i start the firewall I get this error:
"Failed to start firewall. An unknown error occurred. Please check network device settings and makesure your Internet connection is active"
If i disable the dhcp and manually configure the network settings on the WinXP PC, i can ping boath computers but the WinXP PC does not connect to the internet.
I've tried everything, even reinstalling Fedora, and it still dowsn't work, i'm not verry god with linux so if you can help me please do so.
