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.

Through the use of virtual interfaces on eth0 (eg . eth0:1, eth0:2, etc) I am able to obtain the maximum amount of IP's alloted to my ISP account on one network card. My question is .. how can I use all those IP's? Is there a command I can run like the following:
<command> <ip to use> <command to run> ? (eg. use_ip IP_ADDRESS firefox)
Or, is there a way I can configure applications to use a particular virtual interface?
Well, to be completely honest, each IP gets its own allocation of bandwidth. I don't know why they cap that way, but they do. Just wanted to use my account to its full potential, and short of buying another computer to use that IP.
What did you mean by routing tables? I'm not an expert on networking but I'm willing to learn.
