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.

Hi iam using centos 5.4 version,
My net speed is slow what things i have to check and what commands have to execute.
My friend told that if internet is slow execute this "ifup eth0" command.
Is it right???
what this command do exactly
Easy said. So what commands exactly should he execute and what output should he expect?
I usually run graphical speedtests from the browser because they look flashy. But I guess there is nothing wrong with
ping -c 10 www.google.com
(or any large website). This will ping Google 10 times and display ping time and packet loss. 0% loss is ideal, and my ping is usually <40 ms, but I pay for the good internet. It's not going to give you a solid number like 3.4 Mb/s, but it's a start.
How, exactly, would putting ANOTHER software layer between a browser and the internet speed it up?? Only the pages visited and cached would be faster...everything else would be just as slow, if not slower, since Squid would attempt to cache THOSE pages too.
To check your connection, put in "internet speed test" into Google. Brings up lots, like this: http://speedtest.net/
Compare what it says against what you're paying for. If you have a 128KB/s DSL, don't expect faster.
