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.

Alright, my Toshiba PCX 2200 cable modem does not want to cooperate with SuSE Linux 9.1 Professional. This modem worked fine on SuSE 9.0 Home edition, so I don't know what the problem is.
When the modem is plugged in via the only ethernet port on my laptop, the PC, Cable, and Power lights remain solid green, while the Data light flashes green continuously (This combination indicates that the connection is fine.) However, SuSE finds no internet connection, and does not give any indication of recognizing the existence of the modem.
When the modem is plugged in to any of the USB ports, the Cable, PC, and power lights remain solid, but the Data light only flashes for about 5 seconds after being plugged into the USB port. YAST recognizes the modem, but the problem is, it thinks that the modem is a dialup modem, and asks for a phone number to dial in order to access the internet. If I remember correctly, the modem was defined as being /dev/tty1AMC0 , or something similar (while in USB only)
The modem works fine under Windows XP, and if there is any information that I can get while on XP to use while in Linux, please tell me.

On the boot screen, when SuSE tries to start up my ethernet card, it says something about it not being active yet, but it displays the IP address that ipconfig shows in Windows. Could this mean something?
