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 prism 2.0 based USB wireless card, which connects straight to my ISP (part of a local wireless broadband scheme).
I have installed and set up the linux-wlan-ng drivers (version 0.2.1pre21) with my IP address, netmask, gateway, etc. To make the card recognisable, I had to upgrade the firmware (via windows) to version 1.5.4 (station).
I can browse the internet in Mandrake, but the ¨resolving host...¨ bit of loading web pages usually takes quite a while (anywhere from 1 to over 10 seconds). Sometimes, it goes ¨resolving host...¨ for a few minutes and times out.
My resolv.conf file reads like this:
search <ISP´s domain>
nameserver <ISP DNS 1>
nameserver <ISP DNS 2>
nameserver <ISP DNS 3>
And I just noticed this entry:
# ppp temp entry
Where did that come from???????
I have had the ¨resolving host...¨ problem on Redhat 9 and Fedora core 1 as well.
