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.

What is wrong? I've tried reading though so many posts on adding a second, private network. I've tried so many things. How can I connect to this second, private network to this data server. I cannot do much on the other end as it is an Oracle "Appliance" other than set the ip address and netmask.
Unless I'm overlookng something, config on this box seems right. Perhaps check the physical connection and see whether the icmp echo-req's are arriving on the other side (192.168.0.1)? You mention a switch and a cross-over cable, which one is it?
I don't see where I mentioned switch - it is definately via crossover cable. Unfortunately the other sided is a Oracle ZFS 7120 - an appliance - so while I can set various parameters (e.g. ip address) I cannot run diagnostics such as ping.
