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 have an XP box connected by 56k modem to the internet.
I have a linux box connected via ethernet to the windows box.
After having assigned private IP addresses, the linux box now "sees" the windows box.
I have set the appropriate internet connection in XP to "sharing".
What else do I have to do to get linux box connected in this manner?
just do this
share the internet connection from the Xp machine(rifgt click on connection,go to advanced and choose share his connection),it will make the ip adresss of the win machine as
then on ur linux machine set the setings of eth0 to get ip adress automatically
u can do this by
go to network
choose "obtain ip address automaticaly"
exit from that
#service network restart
and u r done
open up a web browser--mozilla, konqueror,etc etc
