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.

It's been a long while for me using Mandrake and can't seem to get online. I'm running Mandrake 9.1 and trying to get online with Konqueror. I am connected to the internet through a LAN with a Linksys router. I also cant see my Linux box from my Win box. What am I doing wrong or what didn't I do correctly? Thanks all.
Yeah I ran it but there were a couple of things that confused me. My ISP is wideopenwest and I'm not sure if I'm configuring my host name and other settings correctly. I'm in the Konsole now and when I tried to ping my other machines, I got an error saying "Network is unreachable". Any suggestions?
K guys, good looking out. I dont know who helped the most but the problem is solved. I changed the NIC, used your suggestions and went throught the setup again and WALLAH! All is good. Thanks to all who helped and to those that didnt. LOL
