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 am a beginner in Linux, i know some basic things, but no theory. I installed slackware 10.0 on my laptop, and now i am trying to configure networking. I can't find a guide or howto or tutorial on networking that actually tells me what i am doing when i enter certain things, so I don't know how to fix anything when it goes wrong, which it has. I don't even know if it has configured my ethernet card (3Com 3c556b) which i found out uses the 3c59x driver. But every single guide I use to configure it or load it or whatever just gives me step by step instructions that fail, they don't actually tell me what i am doing. actually knowing how networking in linux would help. i need help.
