Thank you all for the advice.  Bill, for clarification, I am just using a
class B network as an example.  My question ( I should have stated more
clearly) I am wondering about some of the preliminary steps involved (for a
professional, which I am not at this point - but hope to be someday) to get
past a firewall, while doing a pen test, so they can perform your
assessments/reports. 

I guess I understand, first you need to scan for any openings on the network
(what is allowed through the firewall).  Then scan IP addresses on those
ports for alive machines.  Once that is complete, try to gain root/admin
privilege on one/many inside machines to launch your system(s), or I guess
you could install your tools on the compromised host (if permitted) to
further your scanning/testing.

Please understand, I am very new to this and am looking to get as much
advice as possible, so I can become an expert. 

Does anyone have any recommended readings?  I currently have:
Pentesters Open Source Toolkit
Network Security Assessment
Penetration Testing and Network Defense.

Thank you all for the help,
Sparky
