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 just got a Knoppix Live CD, which works perfectly, but I cannot get online. I have an old Dell XPS T500 and have to use the USB modem supplied by my ISP (UK ONLINE)as there is no card installed. I have found the drivers for this modem (Voyager 105) and have managed to get them into the Knoppix Home Folder via a floppy disc. They are sitting there waiting for the next step.
So, my question is, what do I do next??
Ah, looks like a Debian package (Knoppix is built on Debian, IIRC). I haven't actually installed .deb files before, but I'd guess that you should be able to just click on it and the package manager will open (although Knoppix might not have one). Debian users, any comments?
Yeah, that's the nice thing about Linux and hardware - when you get some supported hardware, you can just plug it in and it works right out of the box without any configuration or driver installation or anything.
