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 have a question about packet editing. i'm trying to break firewall rules by changing the data associated with a packet, so that the packet is recognized and allowed, but the data within is malicious. is there a tool to do that, or am i making an unreasonable request.
haha, i guess we're not quite sure what we want to do with it either. i'm kind of new to this, but the idea sounded good in my head. if i get some more, or more specific, information, i'll post and let you know. thanks anywise.

anyhow, darthczyz you can do what you want, but it'll involve hacking your tcp/ip stack.
there are network testing tools out there... one company of note is midnight networks. a friend of mine used to own the company but was bought out a few years ago. as far as I'm aware, they still make test suites, and you can probably get demos that'll do what you want.
