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.

This is more of an academic issue, but as I have spent several days trying to find a solution, (and in the meanwhile have read many interesting things on this forum) I decided to ask for a little help.
So, my problem is that I have this wireless device build in my 6715b HP notebook, and what I'm trying to do is recreate the steps the kernel takes to correctly populate sysfs (/sys/) at boot time. I am merely an amateur understanding udev and sysfs and I have tried everything I could figure out.
Please notice the wireless adaptor works correctly if I boot linux with the adaptor switched on (blue led beneath the lid indicates that).
Perhaps someone has if not a solution to it, a brief explanation of how exactly does /sys/ get populated during startup as I cannot replicate the directory structure in /sys/ from the time the device is up upon boot, and from the time it is off during boot, even though I'm loading the correct modules (most probably) before/after switching on the adapter from the button.
Thanks in anticipation for any help. Please let me know if you need me to post any details.
