I do believe that AT&T supports linux.

Contact their Customer Support. OR If you have an account go online and search through their online help.

I had looked into this once last year, 2001.

I am pretty sure that they do support it. However, I reserve the right to be totally wrong. HAH!!

Check /var/log/messages for more information regarding the error.

Asuumiung your network card is properly detected at startup, getting on the net is usually as easy as running a proper DHCP client. I recommend 'dhcpcd'. I do not recommend using 'pump' if you can avoid it. More info on dhcpcd here: http://www.phystech.com/download/dhcpcd.html

Difficulty: Medium
Consider the Unix command sequence ps aux | grep -iv apache2 | wc -l This command will output the total number of apache2 processes running.
True or False?
