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 went into my BIOS and disabled all the groovy power features:
Disabled AMD Cool & Quiet
Disabled AMD Live!
Disabled Nvidia Graphics eX
Enabled Midi device
Enabled Parallel Port
Now when I boot i have USB and my pen drive works, still no wificard though.
I am currently hard-wired with a 30m cable to my router :S tracing cat 5 around the house.
It's downloading every available update via "yum update" - 1.1GB worth of updates. Ill see how that affects the system. THen i'll try find a driveer for my wifi card. Apparently it runs on the RTL8187 chipset.
I shall see what happens and report back. If any one can help in any way, it would be very much appreciated.
