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 MITSUMI CR-48X9TE that I can't get to work. It sees everything as "Blank" and won't read or burn anything. Is there a firmware and/or driver update that I need? My LITEON DVD-ROM LTD-163 drive is working great, but it's not a burner, so I need to get the MITSUMI working. Thanks in advance....
I am using a TAXAN 17" colour monitor Model: ERGOVISION735 TCO99
at the base of which is a 4 port USB hub.
I have just switch from XP to Freespire v2.0.6 and the hub is not working. Are there any Linux drivers for this monitor.?
Unpack, 'make', 'make install' (as root), 'make unload' (as root) and run 'modprobe cx18'.
There is still a lot of work to be done, in particular there is nosupport for the ATSC stream. What is working is basic MPEG capturing, raw YUV capture and raw PCM capture. Also pretty much all of the controls that were also in ivtv are working with cx18.
The firmware needs to be extracted from the Windows Hauppauge HVR-1600 driver, available here:
Note that if you get the message "Could not start the CPU" then edit cx18-firmware.c, go to line 350 and change the '#if 0' to '#if 1' and see if that helps. It is not clear to me whether that is needed or not, I get conflicting results.
