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.

Lastnight I installed openSUSE Linux 10.3. It works but at the moment I can't access the internet on it. I have installed Linux several times before but have never had any problems with it being unable to access the internet.
I currently have my computer set up with Windows Vista and openSUSE 10.3 on a dualboot system and the internet works just fine when I boot up on Vista. My modem is a broadband ADSL Telstra modem and I have a Belkin router connected to it which is currently what my computer is connected to.
I opened up Konsole and ran the command 'ifconfig -a' and these were the results:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:30:BD:F4:90:BC
