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'm trying to set up internet on my redhat computer, but I don't know my DNS settings. I've heard you can find them on your ISP's site, but I have had no luck. I'm using roadrunner ( http://www.rr.com ).
Question: Let's say I use a public access unix system through telnet and did the command "whois rr.com" and got the following output:

They look like they might be correct. I'm not sure I understand how you got them. It souds like you dialed up to the ISP and did the command. If that is what you did, try them. If they work you know you are correct. If they don't, phone them.
