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.

after cruising almost 2 months with SuSE linux 9.0, I'm still a happy user, but I never managed to connect 2 of my SuSE installations to eachother.
Now I'm working together with a friend (who installed SuSE too and is very happy with it too) and we're trying together how to make our files visible to eachother. The goal is to use a shared 'htdocs' folder to work on together.
If I understand it right Samba is only needed for connections with windows boxes (but since I hate my own XP-box soo much now, crashing its 'ass' off on a cd-read-timeout, I won't need it much more longer.) But without Samba how can I connect 2 SuSE boxes so that I can see them in for instance Konqueror filemanager? (Or should we setup a ftp server?)
I'm really stuck on this one, since I've tried a couple of times now and there seems to be no progress..
The 2 linux boxes can ping eachother from a console (even a graphical one),
I can use the routing-functionality of one SuSE-box to let the other go online (I'm actually writing this on a SuSE-laptop trough the other computer ..)
The router computer's hostname is 'linux', domain 'local', IP 192.168.0.1 (internal)/DHCP (external cablemodem)
The other's hostname is 'laplin', domain 'local', IP 192.168.0.139
Thx a lot pple!
