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.

hmm, i just went to my router config site. my dhcp server is enabled.
my connection type is dynamic.
i am not worrying about pclinuxos,
i was checking around the system configuration and harddrive and hardwares. i have made a mistake in pointing out that my 2nd harddrive is 186 gigs ( not that it makes a big difference from 240). and my main harddrive is 40 gigs.
i have a 512 MB RAM, so ya sry if i didnt give this information.
my only main concern is that, since LIVE CD like you said should have the internet working automatically, and that i have to manually configure in my livecd to make it work, so
how do i do that?
also, my other concern is, if it safe for me to backup my datas into the 2nd harddrive, will that not be affected during the partion? i dont have much in my 2nd harddrive..i could delete it ..its all movies..i dont need it and i can easily store my data into a dvd-r or usb.
thanx for helping me along brendon. i hope we can work this out!
oh ya i also want to use the vmware server on ubunto os
oh ya again..lol..just want let you know that my main harddrive (40 gig) is a FAT32.
im so sry if i havent give out that much details!

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo ifconfig eth0 up
so what now? can you give me the whole command line if possible?
You are returned to the command line means the command executed successfully. Try sudo ifconfig. It will show you information about your internet connection. Look for inet addr, next to it will be your ip address.
