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 have a system based on the Asus A7N8X-E Mobo which has the Asus@home WIFI add on card 802.11b and am usig Suse Pro 9.1.
I have been trying to get the Ralink drivers up and running, I have built the driver done the make install and have built RaConfig.
The RT2400 module is loaded and I can run RaConfig but that is as far as I get, it scans but does not pick up my Netgear DG834G Router. When I look at the various tabs it shows the correct Mac address for my network adaptor but that is it.
I have tried creating a profile but it does not detect it, I have also fiddled with iwconfig and ifconfig but seem to be unable to set the NWID it keeps saying the card is busy, if I do iwconfig ra0 down and iwconfig up after it has not set the NWID as one of the postings suggested.
I am new to Linux but computer literate and am desperate to get my internet access working, any help will be greatly appreciated.
The wireless card works fine under XP and I have tried switching all the security off on the router including WEP to try and configure it.
