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.

Now where's the smiley that's crying or tearing out it's hair?
I'll try & err on the side of giving too much info.
SuSE 7.1 for everything except DHclient... which I upgraded to 7.2.
We're running a small network with a server running "YP" for the user logins but root is local.
DHCP under 7.1 was stepping on the /etc/resolv.conf file ... I had a look-see on the web & noticed that others were complaining about this for V7.0 & 7.1 but that they stopped for V7.2. In the 6.x versions there was an easy setting change to stop this that reappeared in the 7.2 set. So I upgraded this set of proggies to V7.2. So far so good (well not really but I'm still looking at the docs so maybe later on that).
But when I upgraded DHclient to v7.2 a new problem appeared. Everytime I try to KDE2 user login thru YP I'm getting the error:
"Please check that the dcopserver is running".
I noticed that others posted here a similar problem when they tried to add users but the posted work-around won't work here because I'm not trying to add users... just to login to the network.
OK, I'm a brand-spankin' newbie with too much power & too few brain cells... But in my "quest for hire" this was the job I got... so I'm gonna suck it up & learn. Hey if they can teach Koko to sign then there may be hope for me.
