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 instaled linux on my second computer in my home, it works in LAN but when im trying simply acces internet it cant resolve domain names. Ssh and things like FTP works.
I have internet via ADSL modem, i have external router installed and oter computers are connected via network cards with RJ45 cables. Router ip is 10.0.0.2 and this ip i typed as DNS server in Windows XP and everything works there, but i typed in linux /etc/resolv.conf line:
and this does nothing
im really pissed cos in windows it simply works and on linux not
Can you ping 10.0.0.2 from the linux machine? Double-check /etc/resolv.conf to make sure that the nameserver is still listed - some programs overwrite the file. Check firewalls to make sure that DNS is allowed through (UDP port 53). Check also that you can ping the linux box from your DNS server.
You have 10.0.0.2 set as the interface's broadcast address, which is almost certainly incorrect unless you're using some really wacko network gear -- the correct broadcast for your subnet would be 10.0.0.255 (all bits beyond the subnet mask set to 1). You can change it with:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 boadcast 10.0.0.255
and it should start working again. You'll probably also need to change it in whatever network setup scripts set the interface at boot. To tell you how to do that, we need to know what distro you are using.
Oh, you'll also need to set your gateway, as it does not appear to be set. You can set it with
route set default gatway <IP of gateway>
again you'll need to modify the setup files to make it permanent.
This works, DNS working and i have internet access on linux.
Im using xebian/debian linux instaled on xbox console, xebian is 1.1.3 version.
Ive already find out place where to insert startup scripts, its /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh file, i dont know if its best place though, but working.

xebian:/# iconfig eth0 10.0.0.8 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 10.0.0.255
