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 am not sure if this goes here but Ubuntu is part debian but if this is the wrong place I am sry. I was trying to install ndiswrapper and got it working up until the point where I type in modprobe ndiswrapper then I get an error saying:
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper )/lib/modules/126.96.36.199-3-386/kernel/drivers/net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format
I am a noob to linux so I looked here to see if others were having probs like this but only found one case close to my error and the answer was to recompile the kernel. But when I tried to recompile the kernel I kept getting errors of missing files, so I decided to reinstall but during the install I noticed that there were a couple fatal errors about not being able to write to a .ko file in the lib/modules/188.8.131.52-3-386 .... directories (sry could not get the full errors becuase they did not stay on the screen long). I got 2 or three of these error but it still loads and ubuntu runs fine as far as I can tell other then not finding some files. I am not sure if it is something I am doing wrong or my laptop. I have a friend who has the same laptop and is running ubuntu with ndiswrapper jsut fine. Thanks in advance and I hope the wording is not too confusing.
