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.

Hi, I bought an internal PCI hardware modem (50GBP) from ebuyer. In KPPP, I click query modem, and Knoppix 5 picks it up when running live but not when installed. I've tried lots of other distros and they are all unable to detect the modem at all. Even when Knoppix live detects it, the connection is 9kbps when it is a 56kbps modem. I thought hardware dial-up modems were supposed to be easy!
Yeah they should..are you 100% certain it is a real ("non-software") modem? Real modems cost something like 10eur or so, but are sometimes tricky to find..some shops are selling hardware modems that, when closely inspected, prove to be software ("win-")modems after all.
Find out what driver your Knoppix Live is using when the modem works, and load the same driver with 'modprobe' after installing.
^Shows you loaded modules, good luck with the list..
You can affect the speed with some configuration options, hopefully, but first try to get the modem working all right.
