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.

This whole network is on the backside of my netgear cable/dsl router. I simply change from the 192.0.0.X business into a smaller subnet that I used to rent and was used to. The 126.96.36.199 is the private/backside IP address of my netgear, the front side/public side is 67.166.18.XX, which is pulled from Comast Cable.
There are 2 interfaces on the Mandrake machine. One is built into the motherboard, Eth1. The other is a linksys, Eth0 which is the one I use.
It's all on the backside of my netgear, which is a private network. Anything that goes out is encapsulated with my cable IP address. It works....before mandrake I had slackware, with a apache web server, a sendmail server, and a ssh server. No one on the side of my netgear ever.....ever sees the 188.8.131.52 network.
I confess, your right about never being able to communicate to the real 216.160.177.XX network, but I'm a creature of habit. =)
I haven't installed any software on the Mandrake box. I did a clean install on friday 12/03/04.
During the install it asked me to choose a security level. I chose Higher which said
"Higher: With this security level, the use of this system as a server becomes possible. The security is now high enough to use the system as a server which can accept connections from many clients. Note: if you machine is only a client on the Internet, you should choose a lower level.
Well I chose this level because I want to be setting up Apache, Sendmail, and SSH.
