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.

Hello all...noob question...I'm running SUSE 9.1 Pro on a Dell Inspiron 8500 laptop using the onboard Broadcom NIC (BCM4401, I think) with my DSL rotuer as the default gateway, and I'm having a bit of a problem with internet traffic.
Most major sites (google, yahoo, cnn.com) don't load on this connection. There appears to be no problem at the DNS level, as the host resolves, and the Mozilla status bar just hangs at "connecting to <site>..." No error message, no alert of a timeout, nothing.
A lot of other sites (LQ, for example) seem to work just fine, although the only common element between the sites that work is that they all seem to be somewhat lower-traffic. I have no idea why that would matter, but it seems to. Additionally, pinging the sites that don't come up in the web browser works fine. I have tried pinging yahoo, google, download.mozilla.org, and a bunch of other sites I couldn't access, and they all ping.
Any suggsestions as to what might be causing this?
Yeah, yeah, I know, but I had tried Konqueror, Lynx, Mozilla 1.7ish, and the latest stable release of Firefox, and it turns out that whenever I connected to the DSL router, it was blowing out my DNS server and replacing it with its own IP, so I configured it in YaST and edited /etc/resolve.conf, and all systems are go. Thanks.
