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.

Well i got linux running yesterday. I got my pppoe conected. But I find that the DNS of my pppoe connection takes over my standard LAN DNS. I checked resolv.conf and the DNS is of my ISP. (Well actually I dont dial a DNS in pppoe but a SERVICENAME which establishes a connection to this DNS) So I cannot use my DC client ie Valknut to connect to LAN hubs. I even configured the valknut to use eth0 which has my DNS configured at 172.19.4.56 that is a common DNS for all who connect to local hubs (DC) in our area. SO how do I get it working? The error Valknut gives is :Cannot route to host.
Also I have found that my speakers run fine but my mic cannot be used till now. I tried selecting the mic as record source and even unmuted it but i cannot hear any sound on speaker nor on a recording app like krec (gnome recorder crashes). Any fixes to this problem?
And yaa I have a Realtek AC 97 sound card on board but it is detected as an SiS 70xx with AC 97 (i guess that shouldnt be the problem).
