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 just installed SuSE Linux 9.0 next to Windows XP as a dual boot and I'm looking for a new ISP to replace AOL. Reason #1 AOL sucks and rips you off, but this reason is besides the point. My main reason is because I can't use AOL in Linux because of the damn AOL software not being compatible with Linux.
Any who, I want every one's opinions of good dialup ISP's that I can use for Linux. Preferably I want one that I can just use Linux's own DUN to log on to the ISP and not the ISP software. I don't need all that extra crap ISP's nowadays give you like free virus scanning and other crap. I was thinking of paying for the Netzero Platinum but you need there software to log on and the only 'Linux" OS they have software for is Lindows which I'm not even sure deserves the Linux name.
I saw one from a search on cnet.com that was $6 a month and you can use your own DUN connection, but decided after reading there terms of service that it wasn't worth it. The terms said they have the right to monitor all my Internet usage while on there service and that I'm not allowed to run any services on my computer like Apache and that any type of network scanning like port scans and network security scanning would get my service canceled and I would get charged like $200 for it.
But any ways any suggestions and opinions would be appreciated.

I am using access4less.net but they don't provide an Email service. It is very cheap and has many access numbers and doesn't drop your connection. No software is needed and they provide instructions for Linux use if needed.

Tha's a good idea. One could always use softhome.net or myrealbox.com if they wanted free pop/imap and smtp. Or, save a piece of software being installed and use Yahoo or Hotmail from your browser.
Originally posted by darthtux My advice is, if possible, to get a local provider. They tend to have better service and not a lotta crap.
I got local to. If you have trouble, you can go look them in the eye. Mine is here. www.exceedtech.net You may want to see if they have a local number for you. They run Linux so that should not be a problem. They have one of those dialer programs but you can just tell them you use Linux and they say OK and skip the dialer thing. Oh, It is $15.95 a month, unlimited. I forget to disconnect sometimes. It just sits there no matter how long I leave it.

I think Rauko did say something to upset him. Did me, I just didn't say anything.
