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've tried using tons of things, i even went out and bought a creative modem blaster v.92 (model DE5621) and i attempted to use PengAol to dial into my ISP (i use aol on windows...i'd use another ISP if there was one that was free and had a local access number) anyways i think i have set the initialization strings and everything right...this is the setup aol uses for my modem:
now when its supposedly 'dialing in' i hear the noise and everything but after a while it gives me an error saying it was unable to initialize the modem... is there anything i can do to access aol's internet service from slackware 8.1 linux?
Pengaol is the older name for the project. AOL sued the developers to remove any reference to AOL. The developers have released newer versions of the project now called Penggy at the Peng Website. Are you using the latest version?
