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.

Sorry if this question sounds stupid but I cant figure it out.
My question is, How do I get the networkcard working? I can't connect to the newtork using my PCI network card (OK, I know it is a very wide question). Can anyone give me a tip? I've a surecom EP-320X-R or E network card and aonther older networkcard from d-link which has worked before automatically. I've attached the readme I belive is right.
I am using debian 3.1 I think.
My MSN is oskare100 ,at, hotmail ,dot, com and I think you can find my ICQ and AIM at my description or just reply to this topic. Thanks in advance and again, I know that this is a wide question and if it is impossible to give me an answer - just ignore it.
******* This document contains instructions on Linux driver installation for *******
******* SURECOM EP-320X-S/S-1 100/10M Ethernet PCI Adapter *******
The Linux driver for Myson MDT8xx compatible MAC chipset on
this adapter has been embedded into Linux systems since kernel
version 2.4.5, and this makes this adapter automatically detected
and installed with the driver supported by Linux system.
1. If your Linux kernel is still old version 2.2.x, please use
and refer the driver supported for kernel version 2.2.x in
\Linux\2.2.x directory on the driver diskette.
2. If your Linux kernel is version 2.4.x previous than version
2.4.5, please get the latest kernel file from the web site of The
Linux Kernel Archives. Then, install and
re-compile the downloaded latest kernel file into your current
3. If your Linux kernel is or has been patched to version
above 2.4.5 but you have not enabled or configured the MTD8xx
compatible driver as dynamic loadable or embedded system module,
then you could follow the step 4 to enable the driver and
re-compile the kernel.
If you could use the console command "#locate fealnx.o" to
locate the module driver file or find the driver module file
fealnx.o in kernel source /usr/src/linux-2.4.x/drivers/net in
your Linux system, then you could load module into system by
console command "insmod fealnx.o" and then "ifconfig eth0 up" to
bring this adapter to work.
You could use console command "linuxconf" to configure
this adapter card too.
4. If your Linux kernel is any new version above than 2.4.5
(included) and it is a new installation, you can configure the
kernel by following console commands to enable the driver for
SURECOM EP-320X-S/S-1 100/10M Ethernet PCI Adapter.
Enable the option of "Myson MTD-8XX PCI Ethernet support"
in "Ethernet (10 or 100 M bit)" of "Network device support" as a
loadable module or system default module.
seems that this card uses the realtek 8139 chipset. my personal favourite, as it's just bombproof under linux. ignore all their docs, not needed. just run "modprobe 8139too" and the card should get picked up fine.
