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 an internal isdn/adsl modem made by AVm, the Fritz!Card (also known as the fcdsl). now I've got the drivers installed on a debian 2.6.18-6-686 machine and the device appears to be functional because the avm Kadslwatch tool for kde shows that the device has a connection and that the line is "trained". I know I have to make a ppp connection but honest to god i have no idea how to do that. from ample google searches I gather that i need a ppoa or a pptp connection but i don't know how to do either. is there anybody here that can take a noob by the hand and show me step by step? listed below are the specs i know, if you need anything else just let me know.
