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.

Going Crazy trying to get my net up on a newly installed Slackware 10.2 system. PII 233 system, 256Mb ram, just a little webserver I like to play with. Used to have Slackware 10.1, everything worked fine. Formatted it (during slack 10.2 install) and installed 10.2 on it. Installed good, no errors, used full install, etc. No internet... upon researching further, no network.
lsmod shows NO modules loaded.
lspci says I have a Linksys NC100 Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11) card.
modprobe tulip says it cant find tulip. (this is the module that I'm to use, according to a bunch of searches)
I'm using the 2.4.31 kernel, but when I first installed it I got errors loading dependancies on bootup saying it couldnt find /lib/modules/2.4.29/modules.dep. Not sure why it did that, but fixed it by making a copy of /lib/modules/2.4.31 called /lib/modules/2.4.29. Whatever is behind the modules.dep errors I'm thinking is behind the eth0 errors.
ifconfig -a just shows the LO (loopback) interface.
went through netconfig, told it to use dhcp.
ifconfig eth0 up tells me unknown interface, no such device.
