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.

ive config the network interface, can ping to other windoz machines on the network, i can browser the internet too, but cant apt-get update....... why? my internet connection is avalable through an ISA server, is it because of that? how come i can surf the sites...but cant apt-get..?, i hooked the machine to a direct line and apt-get works perfectly...
so if someone has an insight to this, pleas help me out
Have a look there, authentication proxy server (APS)
I works with the NTLM of MSproxy2 but haven't check for ISA, though it might be the same.
Configure a proxy to listen on 127.0.0.1:8080 that will redirect everything to ISA_IP:80 using your credentials.
Then set system-wide environment variable http_proxy to use proxy 127.0.0.1:8080
Removing ISA and using a standard Proxy Authentication Method will also do the trick
if you can browse with something else than IE then ignore APS, it is not your problem.
mmmhh http_proxy is a standard way for some programs that tell them: you have to pass by a proxy.
apt-get looks at this variable and then sees that it has to pass by a proxy, otherwise it hits your router which denies direct access to internet.
