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.

Hey, I'm completely 100% new to Linux, and I decided to dry Debian. I downloaded it successfully, however we I reboot my computer and start the set-up for it, when it says it is detectiing my network hardware, suddenly a new page pops up that says "No ethernet card detected" and then it gives me a bunch of choices and tells me to select a driver. I have no idea what driver to select though, or why it can't detect one, because there should be one on my motherboard right? I'm running an AMD ATHLON 64 X2 4200+ 939P R and I have an ASUS A8N5X NF4 939 motherboard. I don't know if my stuff isn't compatable, or what the problem is. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Are you sure you have a network card?
With what CD/DVD are you trying to install? If it's a Netinstall CD, you need the network but if it's a full DVD then you can skip the network part and install Debian without the network at this point.
