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 looked at Netzero's web site. They used to have a version for Lindows, looks like the link is no longer good. I think that you do need a Netzero dialer to access their service. Do a search on LQ. Seems like I recall someone who found a work around for Netzero. I used to use it for Windows. I haven't used Netzero with Linux.
If they don't support Linux you can drop them a line and tell them that you won't be supporting them. That's probably what we need to be doing. Tell the hardware manufacturers and ISP's if your not doing Linux then we are not doing you!
Originally posted by trickykid My question would be, why do you need their IP? If all you need is an IP of their website they host their site on and clearly your already online, why not use their actual address.. www.netzero.net
I am getting on line with windows XP... And I need their IP address to configure my PPP... Or so I'm told... I haven't exactly figured it out yet...
I am looking for another isp that will work with linux. Been using www.highstream.net for the last 2 years ($9/month) & was very happy with it until I had a billing problem & they were very apathetic about it. I was cheated out of money so intend to take my business elsewhere more deserving.
