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.

Am building my own LFS (Linux from Scratch) system, and have gotten to the point where it boots from my kernel (2.6.5 and I think I enabled all the appropriate USB stuff) and has networking support (as far as I can tell).
Unplugging and then plugging in my Linksys WUSB11 v2.8 wireless device gives the following message:
usb1-1:new full speed USB device using address 5
midi: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed with error -5
so it's possible I'm having a USB problem? Any idea what I might have misconfigured in my kernel or additional package I might need? I've built the Atmel drivers for the device, and can manually load them with Modprobe or insmod (at least they then show up in lsmod), but trying to run iwconfig wlan0 keeps coming back with a no such device error which is why I assume it's a USB rather than driver issue.
Sorry, but that didn't seem to help. Any other ideas?
Looking at the config file for my kernel, here are a few entries that seemed applicable:
#ALSA USB devices
#CONFIG_USB_DEBUG is not set
#Miscellaneous USB options
#CONFIG_USB_BANDWIDTH is not set
#CONFIG_USB_DYNAMIC_MINORS is not set
#USB Host Controller Drivers
#CONFIG_USB_EHCI_SPLIT_ISO is not set
#CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD is not set
#USB Device Class drivers
#CONFIG_USB_BLUETOOTH_TTY is not set
#CONFIG_USB_ACM is not set
#CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_DEBUG is not set
#CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_DATAFAB is not set
