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 have a linux system with 2 Nics (realtek 8137's I think), but can't get routing and network correct.
I basically want to use the system as a firewall and router and followed the instructions for Firestarter and Guarddog/guidedog setups.
Also tried several linux distros - Mepis/Lycoris/Fedora, but all seem to experience the same problem :-
If ETH0 enable only (always dhcp) then can access internet from linux box.
If ETH1 then enabled, internet stops working from linux box but can soemtimes ping windows clients connected to this.
If ETH1 enabled only, then can always ping windows clients.
Did notice in my last linux installation (Fedora core1) that when both network cards are enabled, the ping command always tries via ETH1 (fixed IP address), the other linux distros didn't show me this detail. Could this be a pointer to the problem. How do I force the browser to use ETH0 Always.
P.S Seem to have the same problem even if Firestarter or Guidedog is enabled.
