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.

is it possible to log straight into a windows network from a computer using ubuntu dapper?
I ask because currently at my school (in my cisco class) we are playing around with linux....the problem i have is that to get apt to work i need the computer technician to do something with the server (that creates a security risk or something cause then the anyone has access to the schools internet and have no restrictions and so must be disabled upon finishing using the computer which is quite a hassle if we want to play around with it).
The reason for this is that we don't know how to log in as a specific user for apt so ... is it possible to log straight into the network in the login screen like is done on the normal windows school computers instead of logging into the local user on the machine so that subsequent use of the internet (through apt, wget or firefox or whatever is done under the user who logged in)
You'll have to be assigned an ip address by the system admin and then setup the networking. Once that is done you just need to use apt. If they use dhcp then plug the box into the network and set networking to pick up the address via dhcp. Networking is configured through /etc/network/intefaces on most Debian based distros.
Please can you give more detail as to how the sysadmin has setup the network. Is the connection routed through firmware router or a software based router (i.e. a PC) and what OS is the network being run on?
What is the output of the root command (consol) route? Does this show an ip address and a gateway address (UG)?
Normally, once a system is hooked to a network via dhcp it will pickup a leased ip address and a gateway ip address. In order to get out on to the Internet the device which is running the gateway must either allow direct access to the Internet (a firmware router) or in the case of PC be running masquerading (Internet sharing). Normally one does not have to login since one is not requesting access to the PC but merely routing through the network on the PC. The PC merely identifies the requests from requesting ip address and returns responses matching that ip to the requesting address (masquerading).
This howto shows you how to use your browser behind an ISA proxy.
WRT to connecting using apt I would suggest asking this question in the network section. I have not worked with MS proxy servers and have no idea how you would authenticate using apt.
the browser works because when i open firefox it asks for my username and passsword for the network which upon entering i can use the interent...it's just apt that doesn't ask for a username and password so that it may have access to the internet....
also.... i thought this was the network section......
I think you need to phrase the question differently because what you are trying to achieve is to get authority to use the proxy server on 2003 for apt. This is not really access to the local network (LAN) but access to the WAN. I did a Google search and found nothing.
