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.

Not so long ago, I bought this wonderfull machine, an AMD64 Athlon (with all fancy peripherals and stuff). Wanting to make it even more wonderfull, I decided to install SuSE Linux 9.1.
My main problem now is that I can't get a connection to the internet.
When consulting Yast/Network Devices, the Network cards configuration tab states : Already configured devices: Asustek Ethernet Controller - configured with DHCP.
Yet, taking a look at the start-up log I see the following :
Setting up network interfaces
IO IP address: 127.0.0.1/8
done eth0 device: Galileo Technology Ltd: Unknown device 4320 (rev13)
eth0 configuration : eth-id-00:0e:a6:90:f7:a0
eth0 (DHCP) ... no IP address yet ... backgrounding
eth0 interface could not be set up
Setting up service network ... failed
exit status of (network) is (7)
I'm quite puzzled at what I should do next to make the connection work.
