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.

Well, I copied each file into a directory, cd'd to it,
and all make did was print out, "nothing to be done
Then, way over on the right, I spotted a download a
zip file option. I was a little leary, having gotten
a handfull of funky, non-functional zip files on this
quest allready, but decided to try it anyway.
Well, this time it worked. Make/make install did
their thing. I can't imagine why there are so many
partial/non-working content type zip and text files
out there, but oh well.
Well, I can't yet say that it has actually been
solved, just that it appears to be so. The compile
seemed to work, and a couple of the listed modules
are present when I run lsmod, but not all of them.
I can't even hook things up yet. I need some cabling
but have no bucks to get any until the eagle dumps
on the third of the coming month. At that point, I'll
be able to test things out as discribed in the readme.
What do you think? Should I close this thread out,
and start a new one if needed, or just keep this one
open till I know if everything is working or not?
An etiquette issue perhaps?
