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.

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 too am running Suse on a DSL router, but having a different problem. I have 3 Suse 9.3 system running on my home network. I have had the same type of problem even with Suse 9.2 and Ubuntu. The problem is, when I change my network environment my linux boxes have limited internet access. Gaim stops signing in to my MSN and yahoo accounts, hotmail, MSN, and other websites are not available.
My network environment used to be a DSL router to a Wireless router with 4 wired connections. Now I was able to get rid of the wireless router and use the DSL wireless capability so now it is the DSL router to just an unmanaged switch.
When I did that my IP addresses changed and the DNS information stayed the same but without access to a lot of web sites. My Windows XP boxes took the change without much of a headache. But my Linux boxes didn't like the change.
I did this once before and ended up reloading the linux OS from scratch. It works but I really don't want to reload 3 boxes with 9.3 again.
