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.

Red Hat 9 Enterprise. Old server at 192.168.25.11 being replaced. Put new server on network at 192.168.25.12. Copy data over and configure the new server. Unplug the old server, and change the new server's IP address to what the old server was (192.168.25.11). (That is so the 100 terminal emulation clients already set to connect to 192.168.25.11 will not have to be changed). Anyway, after changing the IP address to .11 using the ifconfig command, ifconfig still reported back .12 as the IP. I went and edited the ifcfg-eth0 network script and put .11 in there. Rebooted server, ran ifconfig, still reports the IP as .12. Next went to the GUI and ran network configuration, which showed eth0 as being set to .11 I checked every file where an IP address can be set (including /etc/hosts) and everything showed as .11. Just for fun, I tried pinging both IP's from another computer and they both replied! There is only one network card configured, it is set to .11, yet ifconfig thinks it's .12 and it responds to ping requests to both. Now, the server is working fine and the users are all connecting to it at .11, but why does ifconfig show .12? This is bothering me. Any ideas?
