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 Red hat box is set up with a static private IP address on our work network. However when I type route -n I see the ¨ I cant find a DHCP server ¨address of 169.254.0.0 as a route in my routing table. Whilst harmless and easy to remove with the command :
route del -net 169.254.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 eth0 placed in my /etc/rc.local script I would like a more sophisticated solution - i.e. no just a hack. Where does this offensive route come from so I can dd it out in vi.
On a similar tack Im trying to assign a static route to eth0 on my home server - to do this ive created a static-route file in my /etc/sysconfig direvtory and used the command:
eth0 net 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 192.168.1.11
but is only works if I replace eth0 with any which assigns thew route to all the interfaces - I can do the assignment using redhat-config-network - but I cant find the script that benighted GUI wimps tool configures - and I HATE GUI configuration vim rulz. :-)
