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.

Still trying to get a linux box on my home network. I tried Mandrake 9, but it wouldn't detect my network card (Netgear FA310TX). So I tried RedHat 8.0 with the same result, even though I checked the hardware compatibility list on RedHat and it specifically lists my card. Didn't detect it and didn't list it as an option on the hardware installation list.
These days getting a PC connected to a network is a pretty basic process. And since most of you have them on networks, there has to be something I'm missing. Both distros are really nice, both detected my video card and monitor, but it's a paper weight if I can't get it on the network. Is there a really basic howto somewhere? Maybe an overview of the process. Network connections for linux dummies? All the howtos I've been able to find are way out of date.
Okay, after ismod tulip it gives me a long directory name at the end it says something about tulip/tulip.o and then another line about int_module: no such device and then something about how module errors are caused. Do you need the exact wording? It's a bit lengthy.
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
Now edit it in the console with "pico -w modules.conf" or in XWindow with "xedit modules.conf". You can also edit it with another text editor (clear text, not with a word processor like StarOffice, KWord, or what ever they are called)
