Hi, please be patient with me. NO SE NADA stands for I KNOW NOTHING (it is Spanish since someone has taken the english version of this user already).
I am somehow an exerpt in Microsoft but do not use this against me. I am trying to change.
Have many times tried Linux (Red Hat 8.2 and 9 and also Mandrake 9 and 9.1 and 9.2) The latest one version 10 that came from Dutschland (Germany) on the Linux magazine DVD.
I have 7 machines at home including 2 WIN 2003 servers, routers, swithces and wireless access on 2.4Ghz and 5 Ghz. On funny Bill Gates all works brilliantly but I want a change.
I need to know what reading/s books are good to get to FULLY know how this Linux Frankenstein works.
Mandrake 10 looks FANTASTIC and in the machine I put it in woks like a charm but DLINK DWL G520 wireless card is not supported at all.
Unlike the windows environment once you get the driver all is easy.
I did find a driver but needs to be compiled and then what????
I know what compile is but how all of this is done and after that what the hell needs to be done, where to put this, how the chipset via kernell and operating system gets to work, etc,etc.
In other words I am lost in how all of these is achieved under Linux.
Any suggestions for this poor know nothing guy?
