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.

After compiling slackware 8.1 I got the GUI setup, and I tried to get on the mozilla, and netscape browser. It said "www.blahblahblah.com not found" it told me to either reconfigure my kernel so i went to konsole and tried netconfig, I guess i was unsuccessful since it didn't work (yes i was under root ) so here I am right now on XP trying to figure out what to do about this problem, should i reconfigure my kernel? last time i did it took forever since it was either "y n m"
btw if there is anohter way to reconfigure it, in a much easier onerous way, i would like to know but other than that i just need an answer to that "BROWSING THE WEB " question.
After running netconfig did you reboot? Also, did you enter the correct DNS nameserver and IP addresses? Can you connect if you enter the IP address of a particular website instead of it's domain name?
Sorry, Texicale was right, I'm sorta not used to explaining everything i do i just sorta not explain things since i have a habbit of thinking people will catch on fast, but i got it running now. Thanks for the help... And No i didn't reboot for some odd reason I didn't add the correct domain name, and i read that over 100 times. Well thanks for helping me out anyway.
