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.

@ davidreednyc Your problem may or may not be related. If you're running Linpus and having wireless issues this may be the thread for you. If, however, you're just having wireless issues in general you may get more and better help if you post your problem with any other specifics as a new thread.
this sound right i have checked my connection which is %100
i have done as you said above and it comes up with [user@locahost ~]$
so i have enter su
now asking for password
it will not let me enter anything (what would the password be)
thanks again jim
Jimbuck, when you open the terminal and type su. It asks you to enter a password, that you know.
But the system won't display any blinking cursor to show that you are hitting the keys. This is a security feature. Rest assured the system is receiving your input, but it doesn't look like it. After you type your password hit enter.
According to the Linpus site, the default password is 111111 (six ones) but it doesn't say if that is the root or just the user password.
On a side note, to change the root password type
sudo su in the terminal.
Next type passwd to change your password.
You have to type it in, hit enter then type it again
