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.

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.

I found a 2 years old copy of redhat 8 in my girlfriends downloads.
I installed it on my WinXP in a microsoft virtual pc 2004.
I had some troubles with the videocard but after choosing VESA it is running now, also my mouse problems are fixed.
I want to setup internet via modem connection now but it is not working.
Redhat is connecting to my modem, I hear a sound and see a light like he is trying to connect and than it fails and it goes on trying and trying without result.
I'm using the graphical mode and my provider is
AOL, I contacted AOL yesterday but they cannot help me.
I use a Microlink 56k MOdem
and I' don't know exactly what u mean with that ethernet thingie, thats what I found: SiS 900 Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
If someone needs more information ask me.
ow and my dialup on winxp was running without Ethernet activated, but I activated it before trying internet on Redhat.
So is it correct that u dont need Ethernet for dialup?
The Tool I used to setup connection: just networksettings in redhat 8
ok, noe there is tool called kppp in redhat
that will allow u to query ur modem , and also allow u to connect u
also you will be able to get any error msgs and
in kppp, in the configure section --->modem section
select ur modem, if the default /dev/modem does not work for u
aslo other tools are
man wvdial will help
and are u sure that ur modem had been detected in redhat??
"query modem" willl tell u that, if u get any results
