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.

bash#route add -net 10.1.3.0 netmask 255.255.255.255 gateway 192.168.2.203 dev eth0
I don't know if the mask is correct...seriously, I don't know if any of this stuff is correct, but you will lose the changes when you reboot (doing this way) so there is no danger in testing. Try also the last command with netmask 255.255.255.0
Maybe you can also try, in the last one:
bash#route add -net 10.1.3.1 netmask 255.255.255.255 gateway 192.168.2.203 dev eth0
bash#route add -net 10.1.3.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.2.203 dev eth0
Anyway, if one of these works or if none of these works, tell us plz
Damn Red Hat does not recognize any command.
By the way, if write 'if config' instead 'ifconfig', it takes the command, but after that awaits for something!
Also, this distribution crash with 50% chance on start,
and 75% chance on exit.
I 'm sure I didn't anything to crash it.
Also, GUI provided for LAN configuration is USELESS.
I 'll find a better distribution, mb source-based, like Sorcerer, and the fattest book to learn.
I never knew that configurating of Linux is so hard.
IAE, Thank You for help.
ifconfig and if config are 2 totally seperate things, ifconfig is as you intended, the reason you couldn't run it is (probably) because you did it from a users environment, and /sbin/ where those sorts of programs are kept are not in the users path by default. If is totally different Linux doesn't really do spaces. As for crashing, i couldn't help because you didn't include any info at all. You probably did do something to crash it, as a computer takes input and gives output... nothing else.
If you're having these sorts of problems a source based distro won't help you. Arc his a good choice ,all it's configs are accessed via text files, no GUIS, which make thigns alot simpler. It'll make configuration particuly easy because chances are when you google for an answer and it says edit <foo_bar> you'll be able to find that file.
Yea, Thank u for explaining that!
As a 'root' I can enter these commands. So, I 've changed some options via ifconfig, but I still can't see any computer in LAN (No Internet, also) (.
But I'm sure options IP, Mask, and Broadcast were set (via ifconfig) correctly.
