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.

go away (dunno really how, this time the pppoeconf internet connection didnt stop working after reboot).
now i have a "problem", if im not using a GUI, i noticed there were WIERD messages flooding my screen, messages that are logged in 2 diferent files, and im attaching both as examples (with just a few messages, both files were 16++ mb in size, and rapidly growing)
the more ETH* interfaces i have enabled, the more messages appear, and more frequently.
Any idea why i get those ? how to fix the reason for they to appear, or at least, to prevent them from appearing ?
Without having looked at these "weird" messages, I'd venture a guess that your syslogger is configured to log some/all messages to the console, in addition to logging them to the messages.log and kernel.log files.
Examine your syslog.conf file to see what's being logged where, and adjust accordingly.
Then, restart syslogd.
I believe there's another setting also, in the kernel, which can be controlled via the kernel boot line and maybe other means, which tells the kernel what device to use as the default console. If adjusting your syslogger hasn't solved your issue to your liking, then hopefully by the time you need further help, someone will have provided a bit more info about this 'other setting' to which I refer.
