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.

haha mmm yeah..the internet is connected....but it cant able to to update...and i have changed several mirrors. Still the same. I have a question, can we put the IP address of the mirrors, instead of the domain name itself.
In a perfect world the router indeed gets dns servers from your isp and passes them on on requests from your box. In a less than perfect world, it doesn't always happen, but with the dns servers in resolv.conf your box resolves domain names from IP's directly from your ISP's dns servers if/when the router doesn't manage to pass it on.
As for the OP, you might want to ask the campus IT staff about your problemo. With any luck, they're linux friendly.
