i got this book : linux+ certification bible so that i could learn linux starting with the installation,configuration,troubleshooting, etc..
while i was studying a chapter about network configuration the author kept using linuxconf/netconfig ,but when i wanted to apply what ive been reading i couldnt find this tool. (im using linux fedora core 4 )
do u know where i could get it or if there is a similar tool installed in fedora?

Linuxconf is a very nice tool, however it is not part of FC4.

Redhat used to bundle it with their earlier releases, but it has been replaced.

In FC4, if you want to configure the elements of the OS, then :

Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor

IF however, you are talking about starting/stopping Services, you use chkconfig in a terminal.

Google for chkconfig and you will find a ton of information on it.

At the command prompt type:


This is the current gui tool for this job.

That can also be done in xwindows

Applications > System Tools > Network Device Control > Configure

Long way around though, command line is better Smile
