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.

posted this a few days ago, but could not get an useful answer. Is my english so terrible or was it simply the wrong forum? The questions are not so difficult, I think...
I'm using RedHat 9 and got two questions:
1. I try to set up my NICs manually, but there're three ifcfg-eth0 Configuration files:
AFAIK is the one in network-scripts the right one, but if I modify the IP there it won't change anything even after a reboot... The other two files seem to be hardlinks (is the a tool to show all hardlinks? I think so - how is it namend?)... A change of the IP there takes effekt! But the /etc/init.d/network script needs the "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0" to bring the interface up, so I can't delete it although it has no function! Can someone explain me the sense?!
Another Problem is that I like to set up a bridge with eth0 and wlan0 using the networkscript... so I wrote a startscript to configure the bridge and a ifcfg-br0 configuration file to bring this device up! The Problem is the start order... if I run the bridgeconfiguration before /etc/init.d/network it complains about not existing wlan0... in the other order /etc/init.d/network complains about missing br0... is there any solution for that Problem? Or is it unusual to bring bridges with /etc/init.d/network up?
Sorry for the bad english and greetings from Germany! ;-)
