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.

Ok, my husband is a techie, and he is having major heartburn with this:
He is running Open SUSE 11 on a Toshiba M115 and has complete access to our intranet without any problems, but when he tries to access any non-encrypted web pages he gets "Cannot find the Server at..." he has tried multiple different websites to no avail(yahoo, google, any other search website, nothing). He can access to ABC.com and Linux.com, but nothing else..
Any ideas on what our problem could be? He has looked into internet settings, changed firewalls, turned off firewalls, turned off proxies.
We are at a dead stop.. any help would be greatly appreciated.
No, he has tried three different browsers and they are all doing it. he thinks its gonna be something simple, that's why he's not getting it. lol. any ideas would be appreciated. We are going on Day 3 of this problem and He has reinstalled the Open SUSE twice.
The Error he gets is "Cannot find the Server at...". What I find strange is he goes to frys.com and the words show up, but none of the images or hyperlinks show up. Its almost like if a website is not encrypted that system will not see it. None of the other computers are having this problem.
He can't "ping" Google, its almost like non encrypted websites are completely blocked. He can visit .org websites, sometimes, but when he tries to go into any offshoot of that site, like the forums gallery, it doesn't work.
If I am to understand this, you mean he can get to the pages via IP, but not via URL. This is what I expecting to see, if it is then the DNS settings are likely invalid. As repo said, if you can put the content of /etc/resolv.conf here. Also could you confirm if you have a router and if so, it's internal IP to the network with the content of /etc/resolv.conf.
