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.

Does anyone know the name of the "table" if that is what is in the Windows NT network scheme that would be equivalent to a routing table or the table that is used to map a PC (mac address) to the IP address?
I have a "rogue" Linux box in a corporation (think grey suits and stodgy minds) running a Windows NT network. I cannot use DHCP to connect, and I need someone to make a static connection on the network. I have configured my linux box, and now I need to get the network connected.
The problem is that I need to be able to tell the NT guys what I need, but I don't "speak their language", so to speak. I would need to be fairly specific in what table on what server would be the place where the static connection is defined. I am pretty sure we are running WINS, and we were successfully able to do this before (we got lucky). Now I need to do it again, but I don't have access to the same person who made the original static connection.
Well, its a long shot, but if anyone know this I would appreciate it.
