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.

(where) can i get broadcom STA driver, or equivelent that works on ubuntu 11.04 & >? if this is not possible is there a linux distro that will work with my hardware? i have 'till oct to figure this out or will have to reinstall the gatesean V-word to get a supported OS.
oops, sorry, i'm new at this.let's start over. this is what the terminal tells me.
the computer is a dell inspiron 1501. amdsempron 3500+ cpu. i am currently using maverick 10.10 and broadcom STA works fine. it disappears when i upgrade. nothing i find in software center and install, even this same driver, works when using 11.04. if i install from software center would it still need an immediate upgrade? i reinstalled 10.10 to make the machine useful and don't want to go through that again unless i have a reasonable chance of success.
Installed Mint 12 Debian, fwcutter, B43. In that order. It's a rough version but I'm back online. Hadn't heard of Mint 'til LQ so thanks for being.
PS Do not, repeat NOT, use Jockey.
