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.

Im trying to get Linux (Slackware V10) installed on my MiniITX system, i've got it all installed and working fine, apart from the network card. Its an onboard NIC, in the motherboard (Epia MII10000).
I have been trying for many hours to get it to work, but failing everytime!
When typing "insmod rhinefet" i get prompted with the attached error, excuse the pics but its the best i could do.... The first picture shows that is it seeing the NIC as eth0. The next two show you the error i get.
I cant attached the pictures just yet, as i need to get some more posts. I'll be happy to email them to anyone who needs them
The error is something along the lines of:
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/rhinefet.o: init_module: No such device
I have checked that location, and the file defiantely is there.
/lib/modules/2.??.??/drivers/net/ normally, but i couldn't say, maybe you don't have it at all. i'll double check what i have when i get home in an hour or so, i run an average gentoo build on my system, couldn't day if the slack one has it built as default, couldn't see why not.
just try "modprobe via-rhine" and it should find it from where ever.
