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.

im running kde, im trying to set up my modem, in the menu it give me a choice of 4 ports ssy0, or what ever up to ssy3 my modem is on ssy4 and i was wondering if there is any way configure it to select that port.
When you setup a dialup connection, there is a tab to configure the device and a drop-down menu within that in which you can pick which port (ttyS*) to use. This is about the same in Gnome as well I believe. Just pick which one you wanna use and it'll use that one.

it would be easier to set it up on another port if possible.. can you change the port assignment of the card, if it has jumpers...
