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.

Hi - New to Linux, Suse.
I am not completely new to unix, having been a Solaris user at work for several years - however, I have never set up a Linux network at home before....
Although I can get the 2 machines to Ping each other on the LAN, I can't rsh from either machine onto the other, even with accounts created on both machines for my user name. What conf files do I need to change to enable this please? I have tried looking through the manuals that came with my distro (Suse7.3) and no joy.
I would like to be able to log onto either computer and see my desktop - should I be using NIS to do this?
Also, how can I set the machine name in Linux? The DHCP table in our router doesn't report machine names from linux boxes, whereas when the same boxes are running windows, it does, and it would be nice to have a visual aid. Thanks.
I know that once I've done this, NFS volume sharing is gonna bring a whole word of problems again. Remind me why I moved from Windows again????
I've been rooting around for days trying to answer exactly these same questions.
I can find any number of books, notably Unix Networking (Kochan and Wood), that talk about how to navigate around on and use networks with TCP/IP and such, but nothing on how to set them up in the first place.
