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.

my redhat box is directly connected to the internet with a cable modem
my sister's pc (winXP) is connected to mine
(there are other pc's - BUT - it would be easier for me to get hers working - and then I can reuse my new-found knowledge to get those working)
i cannot seem to share my internet connection with her
(i have tried numerous things - i tried to use the HOWTO IP MASQUERADING - but got discouraged - i tried to set up a linux router (with another simpler pc) - but the video didn't work(the motherboard was fried - well the video part of the motherboard was))
i cannot even "ping" her computer
(i have tried numerous times)
her pc states that there is an ip conflict with another computer
i can either use a router (it's a belkin) or use simply use a load of Ethernet cards (i have more then enough(all told - about 5))
my cable modem is dynamic
i have tried to give you all the related info - BUT - if theres anything else you might need to know - ask and i will do the best i can
i was a windows nut - but i am currently trying to sway off it - please understand - linux baffles me - i am sorry if at first i do not understand you - or what you might want me to do
i'm hoping my format for this post is acceptable - i tried to format my info and request in a logical manner - to make my request easier to read - if i did not succeed - please tell me how to post better - OR - other ways to post - OR - other info to include
