Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I knw my sound is supported because it works in FC4 fine, I just downloaded latest v. of alsa, but with debian anything related to my nForce4 chipset doesnt seem to be native, like my ethernet card isnt detected in the install, but works when debian is installed. Anyway, anyone got any ideas?
When I use those drivers from nvidia, it tries to use the kernel sources then outputs the error:
If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
You may want to upgrade to "testing" if you haven't already.
Now for a symlink. In a root terminal, type
ln -s /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8-11-amd64-k8 /usr/src/linux
You may or may not need these packages to compile:
gcc (GNU C Compiler)
make (GNU make)
Qt run-time libraries for nvMixer
