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.

Sorry if this question sounds to basic. I guess I am used to using Windows and things are a little different in linux.
My first time here. I successfully installed FC3 using the 4 .iso files from some ftp server on AMD Athlon machine.
I am trying to connect to the internet but I am having some problems which I hope you can help.
After installing FC3 I tried configuring a Dial-Up Connection Manually as well as using the Fedora Core internet Configuration Wizard but no luck.
I fill-out all the required information, including the ISP, telephone number,username and password. When I finished a new ppp0 entry in the Network Configuration window gets created. When I clicked the 'Activate' button, it changes from Inactive to Active. Also from the command-line when typed # /sbin/ifup myppp or # /sbin/ifdown myppp,.... the status changes from 'Active to Inactive' BUT I DO NOT HEAR ANY modem dialing sound.
When I click the Activate/Deactivate button, is it supposed to dial and try to connect or do I need to do anything else? I looked through all the options but I could not see an internet connection option.
Now, I am assuming that does FC3 see it in hardware browser. Correct me if I am wrong, but when you login as root and use the ifup and ifdown command it actually activates and diactivates. The problem is that I do not hear anything or does anything after that.
