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.

This could be a Newbie question, but it's also relevant here. I'll post it in both places just in case. I'm setting a RH9 box to act as a buffer for my Internet for my work. Here is my setup:
eth0 (static IP conntected to ISP)
eth1 (DHCP assigned from Linksys Router)
iptables forwarding, firewall, and nat all enabled and running (according to the directions set out in RH9 Bible)
NIC (DHCP with gateway of eth0's IP)
I can ping back and forth between the two machines. However, the Windoze machine will not see or connect to the Internet. I am not sharing files, just passing through the Internet (and of course, email, AIM, etc...) I've seen the answer in these forums before, but can't seem to find it right now when I need it. Your help is appreciated.
I changed the gateway on the Win machine to 10.1.10.101, as well as made the IP on the eth1 a static IP. However, that still did not solve my problem. Any other suggetions? I'm more than willing to try.
I'll grab that and try it. Hopefully it'll help. Inbetween all the teaking, rebooting, and other such things...I've managed to make a mess out of my Internet connection on the Linux machine. Haven't really changed all that much, and I've undone everything I did...so I don't know when or if this little escapade will actually end up working.
