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.

From searching your forums here I have got a great start on my problem but I think Ive gone as far as I can alone.
I just built a dual processer machine from scratch, 1gb mem, 200 gb hd, tyan mpx, 2 mp 2800+ chips, santa cruz sound card, It is a dual boot system with xp prof. (which im good at) and Linux fedora 2.6..5-1
I was able to install a sound card driver on my linux fedora 2.6 .5-1
But now im trying to get my dwl-520 wireless card to work
I have the "red hat Fedora linux 2 all in one for DUMMIES" book for 39 $ but it doesnt really cover instaling drivers..
I was able to determine these were the files I needed
I fount these at URL IM NOT ALLOWED TO POST
I got the wireless tools version 27 from here... URL IM NOT ALLOWED TO POST
Ive unzipped and created a directory that is in
host/wireless/(all the folders I unzipped)
this doesnt sound like much to you guys I know.. but im proud of how far I am so far.. This is ALL so new
but from here I have to admit im screwed.. the sound card was way easy compared to this.. Im 2 weeks new to linux , I love IT!!! but im just lost atm.
