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 recently switched to a new ISP. The old one used static IP
addressing, but the new is using dynamic IP (DHCP).
The computer that I use is a dualboot with Windows 2000 and slackware.
I got internet working now, but I have some questions anyway!
To reconfigure my settings, I was running the 'netconfig* command to change to dhcp.
Do I need to make some more changes to my settings, to get it to work flawless ? Because when booting up the system, It prompts a lot of messages about the dhcpcd
I'm also wondering if there could be some glitches
concernig the dhcp, while rebooting from W2000 to Slack (or the other way around)
Actually I can't see mine either, not by looking in /var/log/messages or dmesg...
I was just trying, but no dice. I don't even know how to throw you a screenshot since it's during boot up, maybe I will get my digital camera...
Bynaar, as a side note, I don't think it's really any problems, I think it's rather server negotiations going on. But I really don't know jack about networking and have always just blown that off as "negotiations" so that's why I was trying to look as well.
