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'm installing Crunchbang Linux to an old a22 Thinkpad. No soundcards were recognized, turns out I have a Cirrus Logic cs461, and Debian doesn't include it in the kernel, so I'm following a guide from the Debian wiki. http://wiki.debian.org/snd-cs46xx
I fail at the line that says, after downloading the patch, on the next line "gcc -o write_images write_images.c"
I get: "gcc; write_images.c: No such file or directory"
How can I get past this? Using kernel 2.6.32-5-686
I wondered about being in a certain directory, but from what I read, there's no directory specified at the point where I attempt to compile write-images.
I didn't see any errors when I entered: $ wget 'http://wiki.debian.org/snd-cs46xx?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=write_images.c' -O write_images.c
that's supposed to be the source code to write out the firmware.
I see that the firmware contains ' -O write_images' and the instructions for compiling show ' gcc -o write-images', then I get the error that 'no gcc; write_images.c No such file or directory" and there's also an error showing "gcc: no input files." Hadn't seen the last error before, not sure if that's any additional clue.
So I guess there's a way to see where the guide assumes I know where to initiate the g compiler to install to. A few instructions later the guide uses mkdir to create a directory to install the compiled program to, but the compiling seems to be done in magicland.
From what internet searching I've done, I haven't found anything where someone successfully installed this, so it's not looking good. I do know that for a while, I had Mint LXDE working on it, but now for some reason (probably because I've only been able to pony up for 256m ram), all I can install are Crunchbang and Semplice, and both are Debian based, with the same kernel.
