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 really need some help.I have recently installed Red Hat 7.2 on my PC and I am having trouble connecting to the internet. I have Diamond Multimedia's Supraexpress 56 k V90 internal modem.I have spent almost 1 week trying to correct the problem on my own but i have failed miserably .The modem works very well with Win 98 but doesnt with linux. On Linux, in KDE Control Center it shows my modem name correctly in the I/O address range e400-e407 but in the Hardware Browser linux does not show my modem (i donno why). When I try to connect to the net by KPPP dialer it shows the message "modem is busy" (earlier it at least mounted the modem now it doesnt even do that). I have tried to configure modem by trying to point it to /dev/modem instead of /dev/ttys1, but it doesnt work then. Also when I try to Autoconfigure the modem (through Internet configuration wizard), it does not even detect it.Kindly guide me what should I do now and solve this problem.
I would greatly appreciate If you could please help me out.
