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 am running RedHat 7.3. I have a local intranet. My Linux box is configured to get it's ip from the Home Gateway which is also a DHCP server. I have been attempting confire the gateway with DMZ as to access the webserver from the internet (via ip address),without a host name. In the midts of trying, I experimented by, bypassing the Gateway and going straight into my Road Runner Cable modem. I restarted my net services on my Linux box and received an address of 65.x.x.x. I then decided to switch back to connecting the Gateway to share the internet connection with a w2k box. Upon connecting to the Gateway I restarted my net services and a funny thing happened, I STILL RECEIVE THE 64.X.X.X address instead of a 192.x.x.x address. I reconfigured the Gateway from the DMZ setting, back to the DHCP server only. Also, while getting the ip of 65.x.x.x I was also getting a broacast message of 192.168.x.x. I also had no internet access. I have tried all I know to try...
I have now shut everything down, then went directly from the Linux box to the RR cable modem. I then powered up the cable modem, and then powered up the Linux box. I still have the ip address of 65.x.x.x, which I believe could be correct only upon IFCONFIG, I have DNS servers with ip's of 24.x.x.x, which is typical for Road Runner...
Any ideas/help as to why the SAME IP no matter how connected, are greatly appreciated...
the best thing about Linux I have found so far is the fact that Linux gives me the power to totally configure my PC. So I am willing to bet I just need to reconfigure a file, I am just not sure which one.
On boot, what file does eth0 get its information????
Thanks I will try it out...however what is "1shoot"...
I have verified the files and the system is set to receive DHCP. It acts as though it has a static IP of 126.96.36.199. I only work on the system late at night, and I have changed something, but cannot find it...I will keep on trouble shooting through the weekend. Since it is a test system I can always reload the nic, or even the whole system. It is a important test system, as I will be bringing a webserver online at work, with the same OS, and almost the same hardware. Although it will have a "rea" hostname and static IP, so this specific won't be an issue. However as with any trouble, I have the chance to learn and grow.
