SDF Public Access UNIX System - http://sdf.lonestar.org
Our windows server is connected by leased line to the internet. I want our linux servers to access this machine for DNS as well as internet traffic. No I cannot use squid or linux as the gateway since the company requires the exchange server hosted on the widows server. Any solution pointers ?

Can someone burn me a set of Mandrake 9.1 isos and get 'em to the next LUG
meet? Or if a cd-rw is available at the HBSCE, should i get cd-rs and burn a

Hope to meet some of the people at my first LUG meet..
I have installed Red Hat Linux version 8.0(pscyche)
But I am still having some problems:
1. I have an internal modem and linux is unable to detect it.
As it was mentioned in the latest edition edition of
linuxforu magazine I tried using KPPP software for configuring
internet but received no success.

have emacs. But still not very comfortable in it. I am referring
the book :
Unix Concepts & Applications (2nd edition)
By Sumitabha Das
Publisher Name : Tata Mcgraw Hill
Nowhere in the whole book the author has written to use which
editor. Just given the commands and I am uuable to find the
interface to run them.
3. Sometimes it shows error: Nautilus has no installed viewer
of displaying "/boot/grub/stage1" (or any other file)
4. I changed some settings and now when shutting down linux I get
the message :
Shutting down NMB services [Failed]
Shutting down SMB services [Failed]
Do I need to reinstall?

Linux. Any other software from where can I get it? Any website!
6. Can I install 2 Linux flavours on same P.C.
7. Now I can my Linux through Windows using Cygwin.
I wanted to know like Through Linux I would be able to able
to play songs stored On Windows( by mounting the partition or
using some software like Wine) or do I have to again load them on
7. Also how to create shortcut on desktop for a particular
package. I just drag it to desktop. Is there any other method ?
8. Any free tutorial available on any website to learn linux and
its detailed installation procedure guidelines.
If available on the Linux Cd itself then how to extract
