Depends. If it's simply shut down, sometimes (if you're root) it might be startx, startkde, gdm, xdm, kdm. Depends on your setup. If you simply hit the wrong key and are lost in the command line, alt-F7 or alt-F8 may get you back. However, these are dependant on your xfree86 being set up correctly when you installed it.

if your network adapter is eth0, then
ifconfig eth0
will give you an overview about the adapter, specially the IP-Address.

ping <ip-address>
will show you wether you can reach a system attached to the network
(you have to replace <ip-address> by the real IP-address.

But.. umm... the best tools/commands are good for nothing if you don't know how to interprete the output. So, you should get familiar with networking, specially TCP/IP networking. There are bezillions of tutorials on the internet :-)

Another hint: If you want to get really familiar with networking, then you should also study the network traffic traces recorded by sniffer tools (linux: ethereal). This was my method years ago - and I can say that this method worked fine for me :-)

traceroute, nmap. At the console, type man traceroute, man nmap to
get some documentation. There is a graphical front end to nmap, xnmap.
