I have a Linux Networking Administrator Guide. I do run Windows XP, and not Linux. The person why gave it to me. I asked him. Can I still use it if I am not using Linux? He said yes and ignore such and such.

Here is the guide: http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag2/index.html

Here is part of his one post: Just ignore any descriptions of administrative actions or OS configuration and concentrate on the principles.


After looking at the guide and at his post. What sections and what chapters should I ignore?

What do you hope to accomplish?


Hi John,

Well, I would like to have a Network Guide other then Linux for Windows. If not possible, I want to eliminate what was suggested above. I would like to learn TCP/IP to accomplish learning JPF. The JPF mod said I should really learn it. I also would like to learn it just for so I can understand it.

Well, if you aren't using Linux, I don't think I'd start with a Linux admin guide. :)

There are volumes of information on the Internet about networking and the workings of TCP/IP.

Here's one of many good references for TCP/IP: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/gg243376.html

I have a thread going on over at Smokeys JPF with no replies. Are you, or someone else be able to answers my questions on this thread? It's about Networking books. I gave a list of books in alphabetical order and asked to be re-arranged in recommend order.

Well, since I probably haven't read many of them, I doubt I'd have anything but a subjective sorting of them. :) I have a shelf full of reference books on networking, but there are literally thousands!
