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 completely new to Linux. I installed Linux many a times on my PC, because of the same problem all the time.
I have got a xDSL connection on my PC at home.When I manually configure the IP address, network host, default gateway and DNS server entries, I am not able to connect to the internet. I have also got Windows installed on my system. While using Windows, I can easily connect using the same IP address, network host, default gateway and DNS server entries. I can also ping the default gateway from my Windows. But, when I try to ping the default gateway from Linux, it says, "connect:Network not reachable".
I tried installing Red Hat, Fedora, Ubuntu, but everytime I faced the same problem.
Well yes. /sbin is in root's $PATH, but usually not in the user's $PATH.
Anyway, it seems like your card is being detected properly as the correct kernel module is already loaded. Can you show the output of ifconfig as well (again, run as root, or if you use your regular user account, you'll need to run "/sbin/ifconfig") please?
