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.

Help...I'm real new to this linux thing...but i have gotten so far as to install vnc and got it to run programs on one linux (suse 8.0) machine from another linux (suse 8.0) machine. I soon want to use it to allow 2 or 3 old slow pc's (PII's) to run a program on one newer faster machine that will act as a server (a PIII 500 MHz or so).
Question 1 is: how do I run a program on the server from the viewer and save the file I create on the server to the viewer machine in the /home/user_name directory of the viewer machine?
Question 2 is: I have edited the /etc/hosts file of both of the above machines to include the host name and the associated ip number )192.168.1.100 and 192.168.105. Every time I boot up these machines do get the correct IP number. Is this all I have to do to assign a static IP address to a machime on a private network?
