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.

that's quite a big jump there, from inputting a command to getting a dns resolved network? care to actually break it down a little... does the iwconfig command even work?? do you get an ip address from DHCP if needed?
Ok. I tried connecting with iwconfig/ifup and with a program called Wireless Assistant (wlassistant). Wireless Assistant works fine when there is no WEP key enabled. Once I enable it, iwconfig/ifup and wlassistant both hang on getting the IP address. I know the key is correct as I am using it on another computer. I do not have MAC address filtering enabled (or else I wouldn't be able to connect w/o the WEP key as I did). Any ideas?
