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 am trying to set up a my linux box (Computer 1) and my Desktop computer(Computer 2) so that my desktop is routed through my linux box.
I have two network cards in it. A D-link one (which uses the 8139too module and works fine) and a Real-tek one. Both of my computers are currently going through a central hub in my flat. I want to take the connection from my computer out of the hub and put it through my linux box and, subsequently, to the hub.
I just put the Real-Tek driver in today and I can't get it to be recognised. I do not have a monitor for the box so I am doing everything by SSH. I assumed that when I put the network card in, it would instantly be recognised, but it wasn't.
While looking at the kernel menuconfig window to find a driver for the Real-Tek card, I noticed that it was the same as the one used by the D-Link one (the one which works). Could it be that they won't work together as they both need the same module?
What I would like to know is:
How can I get the Real-Tek card to be recognised?
Could there be a problem with them both using the same module?
You can get 2 cards to work using the same driver, what is required is an alias in your modules.conf file that points one card to eth0 and another to eth1.
Unfortunately, I couldn't give you the exact sytax of what you need to add to the file, but try searching around on google and on LQ and I bet you can find an example of a modules.conf file that uses aliases for multiple devices.
