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 am currently using rp-pppoe in user-mode to connect to the internet. For some reason it uses allot of cpu power, so I thought I'd configure it un kernel-mode. For doing so, I need to install the ppp CVS package from samba.org. It downloaded fine and I had no problem while running ./configure
But when I run ./make I get the following.
options.c:58:18: pcap.h: No such file or directory
In file included from options.c:59:
../include/pcap-int.h:39:18: pcap.h: No such file or directory

I really dont know what I should do to install it properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
