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 am attempting to get the linux-gpib package up and running, and have been running into a problem attempting to configure my pcmcia-gpib card.
It is a "measurement computing" card, and it seems to be using the cb7210 driver.
This the output when inserting the card:
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr: socket 0: Measurement Computing PCMCIA-GP
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer kernel: cb7210_cs.c 0.11
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr: executing: './linux-gpib-pcmcia start cb_
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr: + failed to bring board offline
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr: + failed to configure board
Mar 20 14:26:05 sniffer cardmgr: + main: Invalid argument
I am currently using a 2.4.31 kernel under slackware 10.2, but am willing to load up any distribution/kernel to get this to work.
I am assuming I need to tweak something in the /etc/gpib.conf,
however I have yet to be able to find an example of one that uses my card.
I am hoping that someone else is already using this card successfully and can offer advice on getting mine up and running :-)
