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 fedora 8 installed,I bought a BSNL NIC card,how can I configure to get internet conn.help me,
This isn't urgent for anyone but you. Don't flag your posts as urgent, we all volunteer our time to help. Also, be descriptive in your subject line, not just "help me it's urgent".
What is a BSNL card?? What manufacturer? What happens when you boot the machine? Do you get an address at all? What are you plugging it in to, a home router, or is this in a business environment?
Post the results of "ifconfig -a", and "lspci", and perhaps someone can help you. Also, if this is a new installation, you might want to consider going to the latest Fedora, which is 9. That may solve any potential driver issues you might be having.
If you are looking for help urgently, then you need to start by giving your threads decent titles that summarise your problem. You also need to let us know what you have tried and where exactly you are experiencing problems.
Given the OP's profile I'm guessing maybe something to do with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd who are apparently India's No 1 Telecommunications Company. But just a guess and it doesn't really shed any light on what the OP's problem is. Apart from an apparently unfamiliarity with the word please.
