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.

When at school, my buddies and I had 4 computers hooked up to a hub. So I just moved home, and when I plug the DSL cable into my computer, I can't connect.
I'm sure it has something to do with my computer looking for a router (I know at the old place the router was 10.0.0.0 and my particular computer was 10.0.0.4) or something IP related. Unfortunately, I don't know much about IP addresses, and I certainly don't know how to set mine properly.
I've searched around the forums for a tutorial - I'm *sure* I'm not the only new guy who has this problem - but the relevent guide must be under some title featuring unfamiliar (to me) acronyms.
I'm afraid I can't post my etc/fstab/interfaces (something like that) here because, well, my computer's at home and the internet doesn't work.
Any help (just pointing out a relevent guide) would be much appreciated.
PS - I'm running Debian, and a buddy pointed me towards "pump," but it looks like either my system doesn't have pump or I'm not doing it properly.
You may not be able to get a connection because you are using the old resolv.conf
Boot up knoppix and see if you can get it working and post what happened. see if this helps; http://www.aboutdebian.com/contents.htm
