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.

working with a fresh install of fedora 10 and a Dlink 624 wireless and dlink network card.( that works fine when running Billy Gates on the computer.) This is not a dual boot system - I'm set up to physically switch hard drives.
the two terminals pictures for networking in the lower right hand corner show a red x on them - click on it and it shows networking checked and wireless checked. click on the VPN (I'm not using VPN) button and bring up the networking box and click the "wireless" tab- checked "start automatically.
It showed two green circles and connected to "default" momentarily - about 20 seconds- enough to get mozilla out for about 10 seconds.
Reported wireless connection not available. So I did a full system restart.
still won't connect. any ideas?
I'm currently using Billy Gates and the wireless card to access this site- so I'm reasonably sure it's not any of the hardware.
