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 am connecting to internet through cable connection, I am using also a router, I can connect to internet with Windows and Pardus(linux based OS), I start to use Ubuntu 5.10, and I can ping my internet providers address(192.168.1.1) but can't connect to any other page, what should I do for repairing the connection? Thanks.
Well I am usin g cable modem and distribujte it with a accesspoint( router) for my desktop and laptop on Windows and Pardus another linux based OS connection works fine but in Ubuntu it just doesn't work
I'm currently running windows, trying to find a way to get online with linux.
I had a problem connecting using the router as well. Look on your wireless router and find the make/model and look for the manual online.
Also, open your web browser on the computer to which the router is wired and enter 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. If this is a Linksys, as I assume it is, a login box will pop up. Leave the username field blank and enter "admin" as the password. You will be brought to the router's configuration "site", you might call it. On the first page will be fields in which to type your internet login information. There are several types of connection to choose from (call your ISP to find out which you are). choose the correct one and enter the username and password you use to log in. It should then work, along with any other computers receiving a signal from the router.
