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.

what command should i run to config the network?
i have to LAN currently,
LAN#1 to cable modem (dhcp/auto) (shared under windows)
LAN#2 to 2nd computer
when i go to control center > internet > setting
i was ask to choose distribution? no slackware v11 on the list, so i choose slackware 10.2
both eth0 and eth1 is disable, so i tried to set eth0 to use dhcp, auto, and then enable it...
but still, no internet connection..
You can set the internet connection manually, it's very simple.
Load a konsole, and become root.
ifconfig <interface> [ip address] [state]
That is, you can do "ifconfig eth0 up", then dhclient (or dhcpcd, or even pump -i eth0) to bring up your internet interface...
Then you can do "ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.200 up" to enable your interface going to the other computer with the private ip address specified.
ifconfig can take down as a state to disable to interface.
ifconfig <interface> will simply display the current status of that interface.
ifconfig by itself will show the status of all enabled interfaces.
ifconfig -a to show all interfaces
In the statup scripts, you can set eth0 to load automatically. (hint: /etc/rc*)
mimithebrain: u confuse me..
but i'll try it anyway after my internet LAN works.. or it doesnt matter??
anyway... i tried dhcpcd eth0, even b4 i start this thread.. nothing happen, though i didnt use ifconfig et0 up back then.. so i'll try that again later.
but let's make thing clear out.. i have 2 LAN, 1 is onboard, 1 using pci..
when i use SLAX on usb, i automatically get internet connection via eth0, so i just assume that'll be my onboard LAN, am i right? or it's diff for SLACK?
