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.

well my linux ubuntu is up and running. i thought that it would be a great task but it was nothing.
anyway my new problem is that i cannot connect to the internet using linux. i dont know how to connect my ADSL Modem in ubuntu.
your help will be most appreciated
well my modem is a adsl dial up modem. the computer stores the username and password of the modem and everytime to connect to the net i have to initiate the connection.
well i did a modem scan using scanModem but it didnot recognise the modem. i cannot send in the report as microsoft is not able to read it i think coz its looks a lot different than it did in linux. i am using ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386. thanks for the concern
For ubuntu you want to install 'pppoe' and 'pppoeconf'; then at a command line:
It will ask you a few questions and set up pppoe correctly (well, as long as you gave it the correct answers). If it asks you if you want a 'persistent' connection, tell it 'yes'; otherwise you have to start the connection yourself with 'pon'.
ppoeconfig is returning a message that command not found. i tried pppconfig which i saw in an article in ubuntu geek. i followed all the details but its simply not working.
seriously i am tried restarting my computer jumping from windows xp to ubuntu and back. so plz help me.
