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 have a small home network consisting of the following:
Win2003 server running as a PDC and running DHCP and DNS with a static ip address of 192.168.0.3
3 XP Clients with DHCP assigned ip addresses
1 Netcomm NB9W router with DSL connection with ip address of 192.168.0.2
All the WIN boxes are talking to one another and can access network resources from each other ok.
I am new to Linux
I have just installed Suse 10 Linux on a machine which was installed while the machine was connected to the LAN. Linux recognised and installed the NIC which is a Compaq NC3161, but I have been unable to get the Linux machine to talk the network.
If I set the NIC to be DHCP assigned I can ping the loopback address but when I try to ping any other machine I get "network is unreachable"
I assigned a static ip address of 192.168.0.6 (unavailable for use by DHCP) and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 to the NIC and can then ping itself but when I try to ping 192.168.0.3 (the server)I get "Destination host unreachable"
When I ping 192.168.0.6 from a WIN box I get "request timed out"
