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'm looking at changing our home network from the current configuration (WinXP machine, Linux machine, and WinXP laptop -- laptop via wireless to switch, Linux machine directly to switch, WinXP machine from switch to cable modem as gateway). The new configuration would add another Linux machine to take over as internet gateway and be a fileserver. Before I start, I'd like to make sure everything will play nice together. If it is all workable, I'd appreciate a link (or two) to *good* info, aside from the Networking-HOWTO, to help me get it set up.
AMD-K6 3D 167MHz Processor
128 MB RAM
6.4 GB HD (partitioned accordingly)
7.2 GB HD (currently my /dev/hdd; partitioned for file storage)
Two 3Com NICs (forget the model, but same as in my current machine)
Slackware 10.0-2.4.26 (because I'm comfortable with it)
Link-Max LM-208 (currently connecting us to WinXP machine)
Wireless Access Point:
D-Link DWL-G700AP (currently in use for laptop to access network)
Motorola Surfboard SB4100 (currently using WinXP machine as gateway)
