Creating a shortcut for a terminal application
After watching www.almostageek.com I was able to install the Xine Media Player on my Fedora Core 4 computer. Xine is a great application and now I can use my Linux box even more as I can watch videos on it, but the problem with Xine is you have to start it from terminal. So while playing around and learning more about Linux I discovered how to create a shortcut that allowed me to run Xine with just a simple mouse click and save me from going through terminal.
Even though this is probably the simplest thing to do for an experience Linux user, for me a complete novice it was a great achievement. I have already shared how I did it with another new Linux user and created a show video to help other new Linux users too.

DHCP Protocol (Part 1)
While studying Semester 4 of my CCNA I learnt a lot about DCHP and how to configure it on Cisco routers. It is also mentioned in Module 10 of Semester 1 which my Cisco students have recently covered. WindowsNetworking.com have the first part of a two part article online explaining DHCP, so if you are studying for your CCNA or are just interested in how your computer gets an IP address then I recommend this article.
