hi, I would like to know the basics of networking and how they are implemented in linux. the latter part i can find in tldp.org, but they all start off with " TCPIP is a protocol that is implemented by..." . hell, i dont know what a protocol is.. i guess you get the point. something that starts of from the bare minimum..... explains what terms like gateway, subnet mask, etc. are in normal english. can you suggest any resources where i can get these things? and is lfy the only linux mag in india, or are there others?
