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.

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.

Help badly needed guys. I've been working on this for weeks now and feel like giving up. The story goes like this. IBM laptop, winmodem, several drivers and kernal compiles and finally I get one that works Now I can load my modem driver and run wvdial ( by the way, fedora core 1) and it actually dials and goes through. I cant get my modem set up through network systems, I had to edit wvdial.conf manually to work because when I try to use internet config wizard it tells me my modem wasnt detected. So then I try kudzu and it does nothing. If I run kudzu --options then it shows my modem there but it wont actually detect and configure it, (by the way it shows its class as OTHER). So I can live with manually starting my modem driver for now, but then when I fire up mozilla, I cant get any web page at all (not even redhat) I've checked iptables and its configured to allow tcp, smtp and ftp. Even when I was hooked up to a lan and my eth0 card is detected, I still couldnt get online. So please somebody help me before I riing the penguins neck Emails wont work either
Firstly, I dont know when IBM started doing that but as I said this is a laptop and I rang IBM and yes, they said they didnt have linux drivers for my agere modem. Secondly, can you tell me how to find my ISPs nameservers through windows? Also, if I connect to a lan, does that mean that every different network that I connect to, I have to find the nameservers and manually put them into the file you mentioned even if its through my ethernet card? I travel a bit and sometimes have to go to telecentres to get my emails. So do I have to do that for every place I go to?
