Christopher Negus has been working with UNIX systems, the Internet, and (most recently) Linux systems for more than two decades. During that time, Chris worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories, UNIX System Laboratories, and Novell, helping to develop the UNIX operating system. Features from many of the UNIX projects Chris worked on at AT&T have found their way into Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, and other Linux systems.
Chris is the author of all editions of what started out as Red Hat Linux Bible, which because of the name changes of Red Hat’s Linux projects has evolved into the book you are holding. Most recently, Chris wrote Linux Bible 2006 Edition and co-wrote Linux Troubleshooting Bible and Linux Toys II for Wiley Publishing. During the past few years, Chris has written several books on UNIX and the Internet, including Internet Explorer 4 Bible and Netscape Plug-Ins For Dummies for Wiley Publishing. He also co-wrote several books for Que Publishing, including The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Networking (second and third editions) and Using UNIX (second edition).
As a Contributing Editor for Linux World magazine, Chris has written articles on using Linux and related open source software. At home, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife, Sheree, and his boys, Caleb and Seth. His hobbies include soccer, singing, and exercising with Sheree.

My laptop, a Dell Inspiron, has an external 56k pcmcia card installed in one of the two accesory slots. Under Fedora 3, it is detected, can be configured, and makes dial-up connections. I looked for this issue to be covered in the Fedora 4 and the Fedora 5 Bibles, and found no help
