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.

maybe you can run ifconfig to see wether your ip begins with 192.168. or not. If it is so, you're behind a network, router. If not, you're point-to-point connected to the internet.
I've got another question. I've installed apache 2.0. If I enter the url http://127.0.0.1, he gives a nice page about apache (good installed). Now I wanted to change the documentroot in /home/roel (that's my user) I did it and mozilla said:
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Apache/2.0.52 (Gentoo/Linux) Server at Roel.Werkgroep Port 80
Okay I typed the loopback address and it said it couldn't find it. So, I'm not sure what to do.
I have another question though. SO, is my address 126.96.36.199 or is it
64-4-118-166.mvl.ntelos.net Nothing seems to work. Do i need to do something in the mandrake configuration files, like change the proxy to something, and if so, to what? It asks for http and ftp addresses. -Greg
alright, i did restart and then stopped then started
well, I did originally restart it then got no error messages, but since I couldn't get the page to show up, I stopped it so it wouldn't be open to the world. What I posted was after I started it again. not restart but start. So, I will when I get home post the logs, thanks for all the help, anyway I can make a donation to you through paypal? Thanks. -Greg
I went to usr/local/apache2/logs and nothing was there then I went to /etc/httpd/logs and nothing was there. I looked everywhere. What is the file I'm looking for?-Greg
also the ldconfig didn't work, it said command not found
