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 would like to redirect a web address to a different ip. This can be done in a hosts file, but it would affect everone else on the shared hosting server. I was pointed towards iptables. Is it possible to create an iptables entry that would forward any packet going to bf2web.gamespy.com instead to suchandsuchip, but only if the packet is coming from 188.8.131.52?
I have come back for more help though. I looked in the man page and if I want to send to multiple destination ip's it appears it does a round robin. I would like to send to multiple destinations redundandtly instead of load balancing. Is that possible?
There's plenty of close sounding things in the iptables manpage... check the DNAT section for obselete references, also the SAME section for -to ranges, and there's also the --tee option in the ROUTE section, which clones the packet. wether these can be assimiliated into a solution for you, i'm not sure... worth a play though
