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 running a Dlink wireless N PCI card using the ralink 3060 chipset. I went through the gentoo wiki pages and made all the necessary changes. I also emerged linux-firmware, but have had no luck getting my wifi up. The card shows up with lspci, and the drivers from ralink don't compile with the latest gentoo sources kernel. If you need me to provide some outputs for your perusal, just ask. I'm totally stumped and would greatly appreciate some advice. Thank you in advance.
I took your advice and installed compat-wireless using 'make && sudo make install', and after restarting wlan0 appeared. Unfortunately, it's not showing up in gnome networkmanager. Once again I'm stuck. For clarification, I do have in conf.d/net it set to managed mode.
