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 get this, same as before, but it was working even when it said this.
In "dmesg|grep eth" anyway
I am on a university connection this time around, so I am sort of thinking that I'll need to set it up as a static connection rather than a DHCP....although both mine and my roommate's Windoze computers work 'right out of the box'
Originally posted by Diademed well, it's not that simple.... you see, I'm typing this up on my Windoze XP box, since there is no internet on my linux one. It's a different computer altogether.
I also notice the lack of IP and, for that matter, Internet...
How do I get the University Router to see my box?
If you you output a text file save it to a floppy and then use it the other machine.
You would have to read up the Slackware networking config or post in the Slack section. I use Debian which is slightly different and sounds much easier to configure than the others. I would suggest using dhcp. The card hooking to the varsity router would have to be on the same subnet so you would have to speak to an admin to get an ip address to use for static routing.
