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 have recently had broadband installed and so updated to FC2. Now I have the speed I have tried using up2date and apt to update my system.
The 1st issue I have is that up2date failed time and time again when it was loading the contents of the FC2 repository, at this pop up screen it would soon freeze and nothing would happen until I killed it. A similar experience would happen with apt. I have added the DAG repository in-case the FC one was busy but that fails as well.
up2date has worked on 1 day only but only for very short periods and this has allowed me to get up to date but I am sure it should be quicker than nothing most of the time.
I have a ASUS nforce board with built in Ethernet running the forcedeth driver
This is connected to my netgear router WGR614 which in turn connects to a motorola surfboard and the blueyonder in the UK.
I have used linux for a while and have no clue where to start on this one. searches have shown issues with the eth driver but mine seems to be working as I can reach other machines on my network and webbrowsing seems to be fine.
The up2date log shows no hangups, so if anyone can give me a lead it would be great.
with your up2date you may need to update it, something about an out of date key. If you go to up2date.redhat.com or something like that, there's a message at the bottom of the screen mentioning something about updating.
As for apt-get, I've had issues with it too, but nothing I can give in ways of fixing the issue.
