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.

Weeks of frustration with FC4 install issues, tried SuSE9.3 and it went straight on without a hitch. Trying to configure a Belkin ADSL modem/wireless router on PC#1 for internet connectivity (the next stage is a home wireless LAN, but I fancy thatís a way off yet).
I can now access the Belkin Management Console, but cannot connect to the outside world.
I have the correct username, password and settings for my ISP (Wanadoo UK), & on the Belkin Management Console, once my details are entered, I get the status: connected. Looking at the status screen, I have the following test function/results:
OK, so you suggest I remove the searchsite line?
And when I speak to my ISP, it's the nameserver address I'm asking for and not DNS? (The reason I want to be clear is that I have the DNS settings already) That number doesn't relate to my default gateway at all then (192.168.2.1)?
class A 10 x.x.x
class B 172.?.x..x
class C 192.168.x.x
are special ip-addresses which are not be routed inside the net.Everybody can use them inside his
provide network without any trouble. Your gateway should have second ip-adress which speaks
to the world. Every ip-package which is not a part of you lan (local area network) will be send to your
to your default gateway. The gateway masquerade your IP-Package (that means it exchange your local
IP-Address with a valid address which you get from your provider). This address you will get from
DNS and or DHCP and it valid during your complete session. After you restart your System the IP-address could be the same but normally it not the same.
