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 DSL connection at home through a linksys hub
Hub/router (192.168.1.1) connected to an XP machine connecting wireless usb
(192.168.1.102 gateway 192.168.1.1)
I have a mandrake 10.1 linux machine (192.168.0.2 gateway 192.168.0.1)
which i connected to the XP machine through a network card (on the XP 192.168.0.1 gateway blank because i have internet connection sharing on 192.168.1.102 with crossover cable).
I am ABLE to surf the web on the linux machine and ping the XP machine
however I cannot ping the linux machine from XP. All firewalls are down on the XP side and XP cannot see the linux box,
What am i doing wrong ? what should i do to network XP and linux (the 192.168.0.x...). I want to VNC from the XP box to the linux box
# If you're having problems with gated making 127.0.0.0/8 a martian,
# you can change this to something else (255.255.255.255, for example)
I was able to tightvnc to XP from linux but still cannot ping from XP nor VNC
