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.

Hi, this is my first post here and hopefully it wont be my last.
I'm currently running Debian 3.0 woody (hard drive install of Knoppix)
My problem is that currently only root can dialup via Kppp, any other user has to open a console, enter the root password and then start Kppp, which is ok for myself. but a little puzzling for my wife. (Plus I'm not keen on my root password being common knowledge)
I've altered the user permissions of Kppp in /usr/bin and also the user permissions of my modem in /dev/ttyS0. this has had the effect of getting the modem to dial out as an ordinary user but then the ppp daemon dies unexpectedly.
I'm wondering if anyone knows how to over come this or If i'm missing an easier method all together.
Also can anyone recommend a program that has a GUI front end for System configuration (I'm used to these from experience with Suse, Red hat and mandrake and I'm finding debian a little hard to manage, though far stabler)
(If theres a thread already dealing with this topic then please redirect me to it and close this one).
