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 am having a very strange problem with connecting to the internet. It all connects fine, but i can't get to my site (http://avi.greenbury.co.uk) via http or ftp. I can neither update nor view it. The browser always times out. I haven't had it do that on any other URL.
The IC settings were set on install, and i'm sure i managed to get at it before. I can get at it from the machines at uni, too, which are running Debian.

Well getting at it from Uni rules out the usual router/port forwarding as it looks like that's already done.
Next stop is your firewall, never really used mandriva, probably has some basic firewall settings in the ocntrol centre, you can also get firestarteror guardog for GUI frontends to iptables, or learn iptables.
The fact that you can get to other sites but not yours also suggests that port 80 is fine but your website is running off of a different port?? you should make sure that is open in the firewalls.
OK, no-one this side of my router can get at the domain (Win boxes included). I can't get at it via domain name nor ip address. I can ping it using a remote ping tool.
I've tried opening up all sorts of ports on the router to get to it, but can't. I can get at another site that's hosted on the same server, though.
