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 am new user of Red Hat Linux 9 (linux kernel 2.4.20-8)
I want to use either a PCI based wireless card or a wireless USB adapter so that my computer can communicate with the router. (router is connected to a DSL modem). Currently there is a ethernet based wired connection between my computer and the router and the connection works.
which 802.11G wireless card will work with RH9, do I need to get drivers? are they available as binaries. do i need to compile drivers/kernel?
which 802.11G wireless usb adapter will work with RH9, do I need to get drivers? are they available as binaries. do i need to compile drivers/kernel?
eventually I want to use apache, php, mysql/oracle to host my dynamic website. (my machine is P4 1.6GHz, 512 MB, 40+120 GB hard disk)
Is the machine suffcient for a moderately active webserver. How much load can it handle? I am trying to figure out if I have to go to a hosting service or not.
Is apache 2.0.49, php4.3.7 a good/stable combination.
I would very much appreciate any help this forum can offer.
