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've installed FC5 on my laptop. I'm trying to plug it into the network at work. This works fine for windows but i'm having trouble getting on the web with linux. I've gone into network settings & set the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and primary & secondary DNS servers to the settings i took off windows (its a static address). I've activated the eth0 device (i'm using a 'Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller) and it all seems to be running ok.
I can access the shared drives on the network doing this, but when it comes to getting on the web it doesn't seem to be connected.
The firewall 'trusted' settings are FTP, SSH, HTTPS, HTTP. SELinux is 'Enforcing'.
The above is what i think might be useful. If any other info is needed then let me know what it is & how to find it. Please bear in mind I'm completely new!
Any help or advice is much appreciated.
PS i should mention that i have been trying to get the wireless connection at home working using the 'Solution to wireless on FC5 for all' thread (sorry, can't post URLs yet), but without success. I believe this to be an unrelated problem however, as the daemon isn't running for my wireless driver. That's next on my list of problems to deal with!
If it's a dual boot, what are the settings in your Windows browser. If it's IE, tools->internet options, tab connections, button lan settings? Are these settings the same as the settings in the browser that you use under Linux.
