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 set up Fedora for my wife but I ran into a couple of showstopper problems. (The machine boots fine and all devices work fine, etc. )
One of the problems came up trying to get an answer to another problem. I discovered that some websites won't come up on her box. These sites include her bill paying website, and specifically my.screenname.aol.com and the Red hat Network website ( kind of embarassing that ).
I tried using Firefox, Netscape, and even Epiphany. No luck.
For grins and giggles I tried doing the same thing using Firefox and Opera from my windows box, and no luck there either.
I have no trouble with any of these sites using my MacOS laptop.
The gag is, both the windows and linux boxen are routing through the laptop to the cable modem and the outside world. The Linux box and windows box are on a 10-net, while my laptop has a real IP.
Has anyone run into this problem before? If so, how did you fix it?
( Long term plan is to build a dedicated linux server to act as firewall/router, but that's a ways off. )
Any constructive input would be appreciated, thanks!
One thought would be not to route the two boxes thru the mac.
What type of router are you running?
You should be able to have the router get the IP from the ISP and use DHCP from the router, or give the boxes static IP's on your internal "10-net" and let the router take care of NAT'ing the ips for you.
It sounds like the Mac is not NAT'ing the internal ips and the packets are dropping on that machine.
I don't know a damn thing about MacOs to tell you how to config it, sorry. :-)
