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 standard ethernet network. One of the computers attached to the network is my laptop. Connected to my laptop by means of ppp over infrared is my zaurus (linux pda).
I can ping the zaurus from the laptop.
I can ping the laptop from the zaurus.
I can ping the laptop's ethernet interface from the zaurus.
What I cannot do is ping any other computers on the ethernet from the zaurus. I have done
"echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward" on the laptop, and
"route add default gw 192.168.129.200" on the zaurus.
My laptop is running the stock slackware 9.1 kernel (2.4.22). I have read several howtos on this, but (in addition to being about separating two groups of computers to reduce traffic) are for redhat style distros with a /etc/sysconfig/ dir. Slackware does not have one. I have read in several places that I will need to recompile my kernel- PLEASE don't say I need to do this.
Also, is there a better name for what I am trying to do?
Thanks in advance
