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.

Hello all. This isn't my first time playing with linux, but I decided to try it again, this time as a full-time system. I have it set up and running, but I still have some problems to work out. One major one is that the system won't find my onboard lan. I have an asus a7n8x with the dual onboard ethernet, and I downloaded and attempted to install the drivers for my chipset. The system found the audio drivers that came in the bundle, so the drivers apparently work, but they must not have installed correctly for the network. Anyone have any ideas what I should do? In about two weeks I'm moving to a t1 line, so I really need this working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Oh joy. I really wasn't hoping to recompile my kernel, though I do need to put in APM support anyway. I already got the Nvidia lan working just yesterday, but this board has dual lan, and the 3Com is the one I'm having trouble with. I don't think I want to go to the 2.6 yet, since I need to rely on this computer entirely. What's the latest stable version people have been having good luck with?
as this link stats, 3Com 920x has been added to kernel 2.5 and 2.6
I suppose you may want to try kernel 2.6.X even if it is not released yet (some fun in sight!).
Also, there is maybe a patch about that card for 2.4 kernels.
Ooh. Ok... How confident are you in the stability of 2.6? Is anybody using it that can give me advice on this? This is my primary machine, and with college classes starting again in a couple weeks, I'm cautious about doing anything that could make my system unstable. I have no problem switching kernels as long as I can be fairly confident it'll work.
