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 am using the firewall script taken from online generation at "http://www.slackware.com/~alien/efg/".
I am getting the following error:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet2: /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall: \
bin/sh^M: bad interpretor: No such file of \
Why I am getting this error?
I have done chmod +x on this script as given in the beginnig of this file.
Since the firewall script is more than 25000 words, I am unable to post it due this restriction imposed at LQ.
I did check that ther were no ^M characters in the firewall content as seen on Slacware box. But still I will apply the equation to remove those if they were somehow invisible. I shall come back withthe result.
