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.

I run fedora core 2 on a hp proliant m350G4 server. The server basically does all services on the LAN (email-sendmail, www-apache, chat-jabber, dhcp, dns etc). I am currently using dialup but will soon upgrade to a satellite connection. Consequently I bought a second network adapter (the one recommended by hp for this server) and slotted into one of the PCI-X slots. The first NIC (eth0) has a static private ip (192.168.0.9) and whn I configured the second NIC(eth1), I gave it an arbitrary 192.168.0.7 before I get an IP from the new provider. Whenever i bring up eth1, other machines on the network cannot ping either eth1 or eth0 and network services fail. Now when I bring up ppp0, eth1 (192.168.0.9) cannot be reached from anywhere on the network and I guess since its the dns server for the local network, everything fails. Immediately I disconnect ppp0, all is well again. Could someone kindly tell me what I need to do to have this new NIC coexist with everyone else and what I may have to modify to have the satellite connection come in through this eth0.
