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.

This is my first post, although I'm not a newbie to the site.
I'm trying to install the Dlink DWL-520 Rev D1. I'm running Red Hat 9, kernel version 2.4.20-20.9, gcc version 184.108.40.206! I've tried the drivers from the Realtek site (which by the way don't have all of the files needed) and the SuSe distro (recommended in the readme file of the Realtek driver). I got the SuSe driver installed, however it says that there is module contamination. It says that the kernel it is looking for is 2.4.20-4 and that it may not work right (which it doesn't). Any help is greatly appreciated.
Kernel contamination just means that the software license of the module isn't GPL or another OSI license, you can ignore that, what about it doesn't work? You might want to check the Linksys WPC11 v4 thread, its the same chipset, same driver, same everything but end reseller.
Yes it is v.13. I checked the thread and it doesn't appear yet to have any info that will help. Every time I run the make command to create the file, the last line shows an error and the file is never created. You would think with the growing demand of linux (which is a much more stable system than windows cra P) that manufacturers would support it more!!!!
The DWL-520 version 2 (not like they tell you its v2, not obviously anyway, like I dunno, putting it on the box would be a nice gesture) is a realtek 8180 chipset card. Here's a huge thread about the not-so-great 1/2 binary drivers from realtek:
