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 honestly can't give you anymore information about this card that I have. I remember it being a broadcom pci card. It is a wireless 802.11b/g/n card. And it shows up being a RaLink unknown device. I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows drivers that come with it, but it says that the hardware isnt installed. I don't know what to do. This is Ubuntu 8.04
Click on the link below to take you to the Linux drivers. They are at the bottom of the list and once you have downloaded them and unzipped they should have a readme file in there explaining the install procedure.
If you are going to use native linux drivers you need to remove all other drivers, this may be some of your problem with ndiswrapper. If you have tried more than one driver you need to remove the previous driver. ndiswrapper gives you the procedure for checking for drivers. I noticed you are using ubuntu and does not like rpm files.

im unsure at what you were trying to say. if i have to delete my previous driver, what would I have to do, and what i would have to do to get the new drivers to work. i am sorry for all of this trouble and stupidity, but i am unsure on what to do at this point.
ya i kinda noticed that after i looked at it for a long time so i went online to check my wireless card and i turned out to be by gigabyte technologies XD. Sorry after all the trouble. I need to read better
