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.

Well, therein lies the problem. My screen is so screwed up, I cant see to log in, or do anything period. I need to know if there is maybe a button you can hold during startup or something to keep the gui from running in the first place.
a common test would be to use the 'ping' command passing either an ip address or hostname (ei linuxquestions.org) as a parameter. you may need to run the command as root. the command will tell you the success rate and thus your connectivity.
Thanks, that worked. One more quiestion and I will be done for now, lol. No one can seem to connect to me, anymore. I have beem running a few websites and small online games without any problems. Had some downtime due to a hardware issue. Now I cant get any connections for some reason. I am on a router, and everyone one the same router connects just fine, but no one else can.
