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 found three forums (Hardware, Networking, and Laptop) I could post this message to and I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate one. Please forgive me if it isn't.
I managed to blow the Network adapter of my HP Pavilion laptop computer. I figure the easiest and cheapest solution would be to get a PC/Cardbus network adapter and use it. I also thought it would be nice to have gigabit on my laptop. I found 2 cards that both mention Linux in their OS lists.
The first is a CB1000BT from startech.com:
The second is a ENW-3700 from planet.com.tw. (You have to add a www<dot> to the beginning of the following link for it to load.)
I couldn't figure out the chipset on either of these cards. Google hasn't been much help either. Neither seems to be listed on the Supported Cards list of pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net. Has anyone gotten either of these cards to work on Linux? Or any other gigabit PC Card for that matter?
P.S. This thing where you have to make 5 posts to post links is kind of annoying. I realize it's like this to prevent spam, but maybe you should offer the option of a captcha image or something.
