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.

I tried netconfig I went into the Lisa thing and the values were correct. I think maybe what I did wrong was in the installation it asked about tty stuff and I just picked one beyond 4 because I had no idea. I have a network 10/100 fasteth card from d-link on a d-link router. its a no go though it wont connect to the internet with my static ip/snet/gateway. it works fine on my xp partition, and on my lindows live disk from the get go.
its a stinker i cant find out how to change the network device or anything, somehow a gui is missing for something as important as this ? :/ i tried the help files for a terminal command or anything im at a loss. please help..
also i selected a supersomething for the bootup with lilo and it said i would have to use cfdisk to bootflag a new partition or something before it would work. when I rebooted w/o the cd where the os is supposed to start the text 4040404040 just kept repeating until i rebooted with the cd. then i went into cfdisk and there is still only one partition. i probably misread something, but this is my second installation. so many quick formats cant be good for a hd :/ so what i did was the bare.i startup and it went fine, but that will get so annoying. any help is really appreciated!
