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 use netstat a lot. Sometimes I have noticed when I run...
netstat -nap | grep ESTAB
it doesn't show the program name at the very end of each line. Like normally I see httpd or qmail-remote or some other command name that is involved with the established connection. Lately it's been just showing a single dash.
Any idea what that's about? Machine in question is running FC1.
I tried restarting those processes, but it doesn't help. Haven't tried rebooting the system yet because I'm waiting on my traffic to die down a little before I put-off a bunch of people. But I'm pretty sure a reboot will fix it, as I seem to recall that working for me in the past.
Any idea what causes that? Maybe another forum or mailing list where I can ask? Is there a mailing list for the maintainers of netstat?
More on this problem.... I thought this was never going to happen again, but I just noticed something.... It started happening again right when the month rolled over. Now all my programs are listed as dashes. It was working fine a couple of hours ago, but now the first of the month has just rolled over on the clock and it's doing it again.
Any ideas why? I looked at my cron stuff, but none of them were set to go off at midnight. Maybe it has something to do with the clock somehow.
