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.

So, after disappointed attempt at FC5 (32 bit wouldn't boot up for me, and 64 bit had too many problems. Plus no flash. No homestar? No OS), I reinstalled FC4. Almost back to normal except with VNC. This shouldn't be too difficult b/c it connects correctly if iptables is stopped, so the problem is in iptables. Gasp. I've tried a few things with no success. What do I need to do?
Well, I do use firestarter, but I think I had opened 5901 already(5900+1 for :1 display). Also, I'm at work connected through ssh for now. I do have a linux box running, so if someone could explain how to get ssh -X to work, that would work as well.
Well, when I tried before, ssh -X did not work. I tried again, and it worked, albeit slowly. However, it was enough to open firestarter to open port 5901 (only 5900 was open). So, I'm set, but what should I have done to change it directly in iptables?
