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've setup a Smoothwall machine for my wife's office, setup is pretty much identical to my setup at home in that I've taken old machines, put 270M or so HDDs in with a PCI dual port USB card and a Realtek based 10/100 ethernet card.
I've previously set up a machine with a friend and that was easy, as was my home setup. However, with this new setup I can't get the Alcatel modem to spring to life at all.
I have swapped the USB cards, so it's not that.
One thing I *have* noticed on boot up is a slight difference in messages after it says it's found the USB card. The one that works gives an error message of sorts, then talks about loading a module. The one that doesn't work does neither.

Smoothwall fails to handle add-on PCI dual-port OHCI USB Card on p60 w/16megs & 200HD
I think I am getting identical errors on the smoothwall boot up, and once installed and running the it says the usb controller is unset (inside the adsl section of the setup login). If I try to set the controller with the alcatel plugged in it crashes. If I try to set it with the alcatel not plugged in it says ok but returns me to the setup screen where it still says the usb controller is unset.
This is all on an older p60 machine, for which I have no motherboard manual etc. I've tried shifting irq and busmaster settings for the pci slots without any change.
Any pointers welcome. All I see are smoothwall Alcatel success stories.
