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 using ubuntu gutsy on my system and i access internet through a proxy..the proxy server runs windows xp..even though i can surf the net and also use apt applications i am neither able to ping a website nor use ssh over the net..what would be the possible cause of this..could anybody sugggest me what to do??
because that's exactly what should happen. you can't ping through a proxy, web proxies are only for http / ftp. if you want direct access you would need to enable firewall access out of the network, or it may even be the case that if the proxy is there only for proxying, there's no way to actually route through it at all, let alone preventing it.
