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've just managed to set up a little 2 box Home LAN, my machine being the gateway, and the rest of the family on a Windoze XP machine. I'm running Slack 10 and it works a treat but the XP machine is a nightmare ! It keeps sending tons of data through the LAN, of which some is destined for the internet. I've tried checkinf for adware and viruses but this made no difference, and using tcpdump I've got the IP addresses of where it's going below is a bit of it.
The XP machine is 192.168.0.11
My question is does anybody know how to stop it !
I know the answer is to put Slack on the other machine as well, in fact it's a dual boot jobbie, and it works a treat when running Slack, but the rest of the family are scared of Linux ' cos it's not the same as at work/school
