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.

Hi guys. The one that I am going to ask you is a really challenging problem, I am not even sure that anyone is able to answer it, but I came here knowing that many of you are highly qualified in most of tech fields, so, here it is:
I have a Nokia 6630 mobile phone and I KNOW IT CAN CONNECT to a Wi-Fi AP compatible with 802.11b/g standards, but not directly from the phone UI (maybe they do not want people to do that). It is possible to do it programmatically, but I do not know how. So my question is: do someone know how to make make my Nokia 6630 connect to an AP (let's say the ESSID is 'myAP', no WEP key or MAC filter, channel 11 and 2.4 GHz freq.) and use that connection to surf inside a LAN and, by that mean, surf the web?
Even if you don't know, maybe you know some useful link or something that might help. I know this might be helpful also to other people, virtually anyone using a Symbian OS on a cell phone, so any kind of help would be apreciated. Really thanks for any kind of help.
Note that this has nothing to do with Linux, not directly at least. So the solution might be both using Win or Linux to program the cellphone the right way. Just, I am kinda ignorant in networks, so if the solution is not easy (and I think that it won't be), a step to step, where possible, would be very apreciated, as much as your help is.
