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 installed fedora core (server) on one of my pcs to use as a server but i am having a problem setting up the internet share. (internet through usb home network through ethernet d- link hub).
I have installed firestarter and set everything up as per their website but when i try to start firestarter i get the error message "failed to start firestarter" but if i ok the message i can change the settings etc but when i try to save them it comes up with the same error message i had a problem of the dhcp being greyed out but ran yum install firestarter which sorted it. i have a xp machine and another fedora desktop to network. when i set the network manually i get connection but no internet and if i use dhcp i get an error partial connection. i found another website shaftek.org/blog/archives/000182.html which showed you how to amend the files manually but i do not have access to the files. i get permission denied when i run /etc/dhcpd.conf.
I also have a monitor which runs at 1024*768 at a refresh rate of 60 but linux will not let me set the refresh rate before the resolution but then bombs out because of the refresh rate./etc/dhcpd.conf
I have not seen linux before last friday so i am still struggling to get to grips with even the basics so any ideas are welcome.
