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.

Yeah, I have an issue similar to yours. I have a WPC11 in Slack 9. The card is *sometimes* recognised by the kernel at bootup, other times, the firmware does not start. Anyway, when you run dhcpcd eth0, it should fill in your essid and all for you -- that's how mine worked. My problem is, I can't get a signal in places I used to. For example, my bedroom 2 floors above the base, I used to get a signal, but now I can't (after re-install). Last night, I re-installed Slack 9. I set it up to do a net install, with my WPC11, and *it worked fine*. But, this morning at school, I boot up, and not 40 ft. from the base, no signal. Any thoughts?

That seems to have done it *crossing fingers*. At first, it didn't, but then I deleted every 'example' in there (after of course backing up the original for a reference point), and went with the 'generic' example.
I got quite a few boot errors on it, when it broadcasted for dhcp, but then it got the ip, and we seem to be ok. (for now).
