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.

Yes, I changed the .bashrc file by when i logged in as SU and then it did not work.
But! after your post, I did login as root and then tried the command IFCONFIG and it works as expected. TY..
-----------------------Still i cannot hook up to internet . But I see that this machine is having an IP address.
Actually! i am trying to add this RH8.0 box to my company domain. so! that I can use it as a client machine as other ppl are doing with their win 98 or 2K machines. ( Just trying to introduce the flavor of linux in this WIN dominated organization )
I guess my next step should be to add GATEWAY info in this box but can't figure out a way ..........
I initially followed that link and yes Looking_lost, I am able to see the GUI for network configuration,
It shows my eth0 as ACTIVe but when i hit APPLY after adding Default Gateway address and Domain name, it give me a error which is as follows
"An unhandled exception has occured. This is most likely a bug. Please save the crash dump and file a detailed bug report."
But! this is a PentiumIII box which had WIN 2K installed initially and then I downloaded and burned RH8.0 iso images and installed on this box yesterday.
Since, I cannot get my network configured, I am unable to browse internet to find any updates for it .
Looks to me that i should download RH9.0 and then redo everything ..........................................?
