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.

absolute doddle. just use netconfig or whatever to setup the ethernet interface as dhcp, after that, it's just down to NTL bothering to get off their arses and turn the connection on. oh.. you already going on windows.. yeah it'll be really easy, actually, it should all get recognised on install, especially with mandrake or redhat.

It's easy to set it up man, but it doesn't do it by itself.
I would need to know what kind of service you have.
Do you have something like the service provided by @home Time Warner? or some other provider?
The reason for this is that if you have @home, then the service provider gives your computer a specific name which you need to input in your computer by editing a file called 'ifup'
But if you have another type of service, where they identify your computer by the serial number of your ethernet card then you need to get that number from the Windows winipcfg and put it in the hostname in your computer so that it is identified.
Let me know.
