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 Centrino notebook. I knew Intel doesn't officialy support Linux, meanwhile, they're sponsoring a driver for the Linux community to download, test and use it. I'd like to know if anyone here uses it and if it's worth to install. I'm newbie, thus it seems a little bit hard to install the driver on Linux, isn't it!?
I use for both WAP and WEP authentications... could you give a tip about settings in Linux?!

Yes, it works fine. I use a WAP encryption at home, so it was not a problem to connect with the access point, by just setting up the WAP key in the Fedora's network set up window. I have 2 questions:
1) In my university, I need a WEP certification to get connected to the network. How can I set up WEP in Linux?
2) Like in Windows that shows the network status besides the watch, how can I check the network status (availability of wireless network, online or offline etc.) in Fedora? I mean, to have the same status besides the watch in the inferior bar of the system?
