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.

Finally I have found a driver for my USB ADSL modem, but I really don't know how to install this driver. I'm using IPCop 1.2. I've read something in an other thread about compiling, but since I'm a newbie I don't know how to do that or what it is.
You didn't mention your distro, but if it is RedHat, the grab the rpm and you can install it automatically. Debian uses the .deb file fomat to auto install with apt (though I don't use debian). So, what's your distro.
You won't be able to conveniently do this in windows. You'll have to be in linux.
This is very similar to what I hope to achieve. I'm tryin to add hostap support to IP-Cop. From my research you will need to do this:
* Download IP-Cop source
* Download driver source
* Compile IP-Cop source (you will probably need to install a linux distro to compile it) - this is where i am currently stuck
* Include the driver source in the Makefile
* Re-compile IP-Cop with the driver.
If anyone can see ne issues with this plan feel free to comment.
