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 new to FC5 and an overall beginner with Linux.
I've installed 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 on an HP pavillion ze1110 twice. Each time I had one of two PCMCIA NIC in (WG511 and Hawking cardbus 10/100) and the card works great. However, when I try to switch to the other card, the udev/hotplug function does not work and I can't use the new card. Plug the original card back in, works fine. I've tried to modprobe the drivers and then plug in, but still no luck. Also, tried reboot after modprobe, still no luck. lsmod and dmesg shows the driver loaded, but I get a
eth0: uploading firmware...
prism54: request_firmware() failed for 'isl3890'
eth0: could not upload firmware ('isl3890')
eth0: islpci_reset: failure
for the wireless card. Similar for the wired card.
It doesn't matter which card was in when I install the OS, but that is the only card that will work. lspci does not show the new card either. Is the solution to install the OS with "no" card installed or is there a setting someplace that I'm just missing. Apologies ahead of time if there is a solution posted somewhere but I've googled for about 3 days now and haven't found anything.
