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.

ok well i said screw it and went out and found a NE2000 ISA clone and mandrake immediately recogonized it and its in drake's hardware profile, but for some reason i cant get on the net, im pretty sure everything is configured properly in linuxconf but it still wont work (

Just type ifconfig at a prompt and then copy/paste the output from the command into your post. Do the same with route. ifconfig will show us what interfaces are detected and route will show us how linux is trying to route network traffic.
I have installed mandrake 7.1 linux on IBM pentium III but linux could not
detect my network card (Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Desktop adapter). I checked the
adapter card support for linux and it states that the driver only supports
Linux* 2.25 and above. I do not think there is such version of linux or am I
What can I do to get Linux detect my NIC
When it states that your card is only supported in Linux 2.2.5 or above, that is referring to the Kernel. If your card states it is supported, then check their website for a driver download. Most likely they will have one for your card if they state it is supported.
