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 also have laptop which receives internet wirelessly from router which draws from same modem.
So laptop has configuration
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.3
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.1
I want to access my desktop hard disk from laptop .
Is there a way other than
(1)connecting both to router so they have 10.0.0.2&3
(2)connecting laptop to modem so router rendered unused & laptop ain't using wireless.
All I know is 10.something & 192.168.something fall in private IP address range .
Why do you have 2 subnets, and two default gateway addresses for the modem? Does it contain a router? Is is a DSL modem? Describe the connection between the desktop and the modem. Is it a PPOE connection? Some DSL ISPs assign private addresses, and everyone is behind their NAT router.
If you only have two hosts, and the modem incorporates a NAT router, the simplest solution will be to configure the laptop to be on the 10. network.
