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 would appreciate any input that will help me learn more about Madwifi and Kismet. I've got an eee running Backtrack3 off USB flash. I'm a noob, but i have been learning at as fast rate, but have frustrating gaps in my knowledge, so please help.

lo no wireless connection
eth0 no wireless connection
wifi0 no wireless connection
ath0 is in Managed Mode (I can't cut and paste all details, I'm on a different computer at the moment)
My kismet.conf file has the line source=madwifi_g,wifi0,madwifi
Now, I run Kismet and it brings up the Network list = great, it works
Now, i have something called kis0, and i don't know what that is
I don't really understand what's going on with my system, when i try to use aircrack, the instructions are to stop ath0, so i can start it in monitor mode. But it doesn't work,
airmon-ng stop ath0
