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 work with a small all volunteer help ministry. Someone donated an older EMachine to us on which he had installed Fedora Red Hat with Mozilla as a browser. It has just kind of been here and used occassionally for non net things but since I am the nearest thing to an expert we have on computers and that is as near as GA is to CA no one has mastered it. Now our main computer - windows based - has died and gone off for repair or into never never land. The EMachine could serve our needs well if and that is a huge if I could figure out how to get it on net. I can not find anywhere in Mozilla to insert dial up info and am guessing that it like IE and Netscape needs there to be a separate connection. I also can not find any place in the Red Hat stuff to make a dial up connection. There probably is one but I don't even know where or how to look for it. We had DSL but our modem requires inserting a CD in our computer to make the computer and the modem work together and of course that is windows based and the Fedpra machine can not seem to recognize it let alone run it. We need net access desparately but to buy another computer or rent one means that we will be using money that opught to be helping people eat and have heat and lights. Can anyone tell me in very simple basic words how to get on line w/ this. I am now on a computer that use only sometimes at a different location and not in the best of conditions. Thank you very much.
