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.

Name is Gal an I'm NEWBIe... last time I saw linux was 13 years ago, it changed a lot!
I installed SuSE linux 10.1 on my PC and got two problems:
1) when I open any of the browsers, I can't see google. I can go on Novell's site, but, most sites seem blocked (unavilable). what can I do to have a normal access to all sites (it's so bad, I have to use the XP to post this).
I have an external ADSL LAN modem/router, but I don't think it's a problem with him couse when I star winXP
I dont have any restriction.
2) I have two HD's. on hda I have winXP/sp2 and on hdb have the linux. I cant access the XP (NTFS) drivers from linux. int the initial startup I can catch a glimps that the mounting process fails beacouse "dev/hda1 not exist" or something like that.
thanks a lot,
p.s. I posted on the newbie forum and got nothing maybe this time...
Not sure about suse, but on fedora you need a specific kernel module to read ntfs. A while since I set this up, but I'm sure a quick search of the archives along the lines of "mount ntfs" will get you oodles of hits (oodles is a very technical word if you haven't come across it much)
well, the bad news is that I loged on as root and could see Any web pages, but, it seems that the processes stop within the system, the requests are blocked by linux and dont even get to the modem/net.
I open YaST, looked at the netwok services and couldn't see nothing indicating HTTP, there was ftp.. and pop3, but the 'HTTP' word does not appear there. hope that helps.
P.S. still looking in that mount problem. when I 'ls' the 'etc' sub I can see 'hda' but not 'hda1' or any other (hda is where the winXP is).
If you're in yast it will not so hard to find the firewall.
Check all Items in KDE you'll find the firewall.
next if you have a router like you said that includes a dhcp.
Then you're network card will get a dhcp lease. Cause If you didn't changed anything during the setup the default value is dhcp on.
So open a terminal.
then verify your root password.
How said use curl -v ??!?!
in that terminal after you've gained root access.
it will probably end with the same result.
if the only device you see there is lo or sit0 then check your network card config using YAST.
Check if your card starts when the system starts at boot time and that dhcp is enabled.
if you see an entry called nameserver=ip address then we have to check some more if not. you will have to edit the DNS Server entry with YAST or use vi to edit the resolve.conf
Mostly it's like this.
IF YOUR ROUTER HAS GOT THE 192.168.2.1 then DNS = 192.168.2.1 for the clients and also the Gateway address. The Problem is in the most cases that even if dhcp is running on the router only an IP within the range is delivered to teh client including the gateway address but the DNS address isn't. So you'll have to edit the file /etc/resolve.conf so that there is a nameserver entry with the IP of your router. e.g. nameserver 192.168.2.1
I've seen it you double posted!!!!
slap youself :-)
But I am glad that it's solved so far.
But firefox still doesn't work.
Check if you maybe have proxy enabled in firefox which is of course a mistake in your current internet configuration. In Firefox there is a option tab for connection.
See if Proxy is enabled there, it should be set to direct connection.
