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.

at home , we have a small network setup. Cable model goes to a netgear router, there are 3 wxp systems all online and good, but my linux system has no internet access. I used all the same settings for ip address and gateway, the dns servers , netmask ect, and when booting (rh 7.2 fresh install) eth0 comes up without error.
If I try to ping an address or open a website I get no response, as root or a regular user.
well I played some more and things have gone odd, I am now posting from the linux box here at home, BUT for some reason I can ping addresses here ok, like 192.169.0.* but trying like a "ping ftp.cdrom.com" fails with 100% packet loss
