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 been using Mandrake for 4 1/2 years, since TRYING to install 9.2, this would be my 9th attempt, never had a problem in the past like this.
My box has a Nvidia Genforce4, working but not fully optimized yet. Anyway checking my boot.log I get this message:
Bringing up interface eth0: failed
All my versions of Mandrake had auto detected & installed the tulip module in the past. In the Network & Internet setup it asks how I am set to the internet = Cable, in the past that was all I selected, this time I used the wizard - it said Lan connection- ethernet card(s) detected. Not sure what to do so I accepted the Lan setup, when I try Mozilla, it says cannot find the web address.
I need the internet connection so I can get the newest Nvidia drivers, and of course to get my e-mail, my wife wants me off her windoze box as soon as possible.
My 9.1 was running like a top, thought it was a good time to blow off my windoze & take the 20 gigs, not my best idea it seems
I had no problems with the etho set up... Just put in the correct IP address, Netmask & Gateway as asked... Setup does run you through etho and lan settings, in 10 beta you can get by just doing the etho settings ( different format )... 9.2 was my first Linux distro...
