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.

Done a fresh installation on a brand new Acer Veriton M265
It came with Linpus installed ( Gnome ) and I want to turn it into a virtualbox host with slackware13.1 64
Problem: The realtek card (eth0) doesn't work like I would like it to work. I briefly tested the factory Linpus installation, and everything worked. Installed Slackware, and no network.
Looks like its a Realtek 8169(?) ( Gigabit lan ) onboard card, that needs a special treatment? I did find some Ubuntu users fixing Realtek cards not giving a link after a dualboot with Windows, (Wake-On-Lan driver/function in windows sets eth-card into some kind of state that Linux can't get it out of. BUT: I haven't had a dualboot (or Windows) on the machine (ever). The postings I did find where all 'old': 2008-ish..
I would think the bleeding edge 13.1 ( :P ) slackware would run like a charm on this fairly new, but not bleeding edge hardware. (Pentium E5400, 2Gb ram, 160Gb hdd.
Will either run VirtualBox to host a W2K environment, or VMware player with XP Pro. W2K is good enough, but for remote desktopwork I will need VirualBox PUEL version, where VMware player doesn't support this (does it?) so for remote desktop I'll need XP Pro, I guess.
Still can't figure out why it did work out of the box with Linpus, but it was the freak'n CABLE! Got 4 wall plugs, 4 pc's, switched cables over and voila: works! The pc that got the cable from the slackbox went off-line instantly, so must be either the cable or the wall plug.
Everybody thank you for lurking and please whipe off that grin: hardware failure where you least expect it
