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 will get that for you i am on my windows partition right now and have no access to the internet yet that is my problem i am trying to configure a dial up thing on gnome and it says ppp deamon may not have been installed ?
I use to dial into my school, but mine was very picky on how students were dialing into to use their systems. First thing I would do is check with the school and see if they have any certain settings or anything to dial into the school with, I am sure they do, or someone is willing to help on the admin end, most schools now use linux.
Hope I'm not steering you in the wrong direction here, as I'm new to this as well, but here goes.
If PPP is not installed.....I guese you could check it from the command prompt......... rpm -q ppp and see what it says.
If it isnt installed, you would need to install it from disk, or download it.
Someone please correct me if I'm giving bad advice.
What Linux distibution are you running?In addition to Wazza's suggestion,try doing a *whereis* from an xterm.If like most versions of Linux you probably have more than one ppp app.See if you can run kppp from Gnome.I know you can run Gnome ppp from kde,so I dont see why you couldnt do it the other way around.
Lilo and triple booting with Suse's version of lilo
Ok, I installed windows and copied my partitions to my other hard drive that is the same size. I was running a dual boot on my original hard drive with Debian and windows XP. I copied all of my parittions to my new hard drive with drive image except my windows partition (which I installed seperately before transferring my Linux partitoins). On my new hard drive I have all of that but installed Suse also. I am now dual booting Suse and XP with Suse's version of Lilo on the MBR. When I am in Suse, I can see all my Debian files in the Debian partition. When I try to pick Debian as the option in Lilo, I get a secondary green dos-like Lilo menu. When I try to pick Debian from that, it does nothing, but when I try to pick any other option from there it boots ok like windows or suse. Does anyone have a solution for this?
