Yes, they are somewhat basic questions...
I know what you mean by books and their availability. My situation is
even a bit more acute since the books I want/need are often
available....but only in Chinese. So, I do have to suffer while I wait
for the UPS guy to deliver from Amazon.

Well.... I still feel that sometimes this list is over used for topics
that can better be discussed elsewhere. I just don't feel this list is
the proper place to discuss general networking theory/practice. Now,
how to implement networking practices under fedora/red hat systems would
be more appropriate....and sure there are grey areas (or gray
areas)...but your Qs are as you say....basic.
