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.

Installed Fedora 5 and when I try to ping other machines (Windows for now), the response is Destination host unreachable.
I had a simailer problem when I was using Mandrake and with the help of linuxquestions.org determined that it was a firewall setting. Fedora looks a lot different so am having a hard time figuring which setting to change. I found IPTables in service but shutting that down made no diffence that I could see
This machine is going to be used as a file server and hopefully an Application server. Everything appears to be setup right, IP addresses, NICs, etc though I'm not sure about whether Workgroup is named right,(though in 'smb.conf' it looks right.) also I'm not using DHCP.
I've Googled this and a lot of the time I can't get some commands to work in terminal, even as SU and using /sbin/
OK, this is as verbatum as I could get, meaning I think I got it right
from root /sbin/ip route show

Is not the 169.254.0.0 a default ip address when there is no DHCP present? I'm not using DHCP, also the gateway computer is not yet working. (no high speed yet) The only NIC that should have a Gateway is eth0, I did not specify any for eth1 or eth2
