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.

Ok right now I have 2 computers networked together to share the internet connection and this is using dial up.Now not all computers used at once so speed splitting doesn't always happen being most of the time only one pc using the net at once.What I want to do is add a 3rd pc to the network.Right now the 2 are hooked together with a cat5 cable with both running network cards.What I want to know is it possible to add a 2nd network card to the host and run from that card to a 3rd pc or am I only able to share with one pc.Now if 1 is all I can do is it possible to put a 2nd card in the client machine and run a cat5 to another pc and in the end all 3 share the connection Thank You
Yes a hub is the best way and here in the near future I will purchase one but for now want to know what I need to do to have a three online using the cat 5 cables and the network cards.Right now I have the main set as host and the other as client.Well the 2nd card in the host is connected to the 3rd pc.Well I have it set up as a dial up adapter to acess the web and the one network card to acess the network but how do I go about telling it to use both cards to acess the network so that it feeds internet to both clients.I ask because I see where there is only one place to tell it the card to acess the network.Also if I move the open card to the client hooked up now is it possible for that machine to be a client and at the same time be a host to the 3rd pc.I got the 2 going just fine but basically need to know how to join the 3rd one in on the prize lol. Thank You
