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.

its ok thankyou keratos, i have succeeded in booting a fully functional operating system, i booted Debian Etch from floppies and did an HTTP install, all i need now is to get my wireless drivers working
its an rt61 keratos, only ubuntu support them as standard which is what i'm running now off the same maimed MB, it's almost like there's nothing wrong with it at all now, i've learned to boot linux iso images from HDD partitions using the all in one boot floppy you pointed me to, i owe you my knowledge of linux inner workings that i've learned through this experience, thanks mate
If not, a common problem is lack of kernel driver support for the RT61 module. The RT61 module is not specific to Ubuntu. It is widely available as vanilla kernel module. You just need a very new kernel (e.g. 2.6.22.x or later) to get the kernel hooks in place so that the kernel can talk to the module.
