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.

From the man pages
kudzu detects and configures new and/or changed hardware on a system. When started, kudzu detects the current hardware, and checks it against a database stored in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, if one exists. It then determines if any hardware has been added or removed from the system. If so, it gives the users the opportunity to configure any added hardware, and unconfigure any removed hardware. It then updates the database in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.
If no previous database exists, kudzu attempts to determine what devices have already been configured, by looking at /etc/modules.conf, /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, and /etc/X11/XF86Config.
From reading the man pages
1. The "kudzu.conf" file is /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
2. If no database i.e. the hwconf file does not exist kudzu will run clean. Instead of deleting the hwconf file I would rename it to something like hwconf.bak
I'm running red hat 5.4 in a Virtual machine in Lab Manager in VMWare.
I have a configuration with two VMachines that need to connect to each other by SSH.
From what I was told, each machine needs to have two nics with internal IPs that connect externaly via NAT, automatically configured by Lab Manager. This is due to the middleware that will be installed on top of redhat.
external IP : lab IP x.x.x.1
external IP : lab IP x.x.x.2
Everything works ok and I can ping both the machines from each other(A<->B) but I can not SHH from one to the other.(SSH from A<->B not possible)
The firewall is disabled and sshd ir running.
From my laptop I can SHH both the machines.
I was told that I need to restart both machines and run Kudzu to change the nics IP configuration to "use dynamic IP configuration".
The problem is that I can not run Kudzu. Everytime I type the command nothing happens.
Added kudzu to the startup services but nothing happens.
Tried to force the start by removing the cards but Lab manager automatically restores the nics and kudzu is never started.
Also tried to start kudzu manually with root account but nothing happens.
