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.

Last time I was here, my problem was solved (no internet in Fedora). Now that I know a bit more, I've gotten into VMware because it's needed for university. NOW, I've configured VMware Player so that the only ethernet connection it has (.vmnet0) is bridged to eth0, which is functional in normal OS (no emulation).
Any suggestions? It seems that I need to specify my DNS servers at startup (which is how my other problem was solved). Is this possible? Since I can't get to any GUI before I get a stop error from the Player that it isn't able to acquire resources (it needs to connect to the net first thing).
It's pretty late here, so if more information is needed (or clearing up of this garbage, haha) then please tell me.
The .vmx file I'm using is an Ubuntu distro (not sure which version), but I may be able to find out.
It's not urgent as I can just use VMware player for Windows on my Windows PC and that would solve the problem, but that would be a tad inconvenient!
