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 have done a completely fresh install of mint 8 into my hp zv6000 laptop. I cannot get the ethernet to work. Worked fine in XP so I'm sure it is not the ethernet port. Ethernet works fine on my alternate laptop, so I know it is working. My wireless bdm-4318 is not working either. Need to fix either one but would prefer to have ethernet connection. Please help me if you can.
New to this but have seen requests for lspci when askign these types of questions so here is is.
