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.

and it seems like it works fine and all, but I can't ping this IP from other machines. I get: connect: Network is unreachable
Now, I tried to add a route to my routing table and I did:
route add -net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth2
Now, when I do a ping, instead of that network unreachable message, I get the PING header information BUT it gets stuck there forever:
> ping 192.168.1.100
PING 192.168.1.100 (192.168.1.100) 56(84) bytes of data.
Any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it?
Are you using a Redhat-ish distro that has SELinux? SE Linux is kind of like a security layer that prevents certain un-authorized system changes. If you do try disabling SELinux temporarily and see if your changes take.
