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.

While attempting to set up my computer onto the local network I happened to accidentally delete the Ethernet option in the control center. I canít seem to get it back. The computer no longer recognizes one at all. When going to the network center there are no options to choose from and when I attempt to set up a new network from the control center and select the Ethernet option It tells me ďNo device can be found for this connection type.Ē I need help with how to get the computer to recognize that there is an Ethernet port again to I can add this computer to the LAN.

too much to type but i see 5 usb controllers and no ethernet though the last usb is labled differently from the rest:
1-4... USB UHCI Controler
5... USB2 EHCI Controller
everything else are bridges or interfaces
also way too much to type out. if you let me know what your looking for i can tell you if its there or what it says. The computer with the problem is not on the internet and i cannot connect to the internet without the eth0 working.
--also i have no idea what you mean by distro or how to find it--
I still think this may be bios or firmware related. Can you toggle it off(disable) and back on(enable) again in the bios? It also might be a good sanity check to boot from a live cd or something an check to see if it is visible to another OS.
added a second network card to see if the system picked it up. Not only did it pick up the new card but the origional came back on as well. I removed the second card and the origional is still working. Thank you all for all of your help.
