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 just started using Fedora 4 (first time using Linux, trying to stop using winblows)
my wifi card is not detected by fedora but i found some info as per a Google search (noob here but very computer smart).. i downloaded the driver needed but with the how to i cant make out what it is asking me to do.. i have only used Linux for about a total of 8hrs so far
here is the how to: linux-militia.net/howtos/asus/asuswifi.html
(sorry you have to copy and past because i need 5 posts before i can post a link)
maybe rewrite it in noob lingo or previous winblows user lingo..
on a side note... don't worry i will be snaggin some ebooks and noob guides once i get this figured out.. just need to get online with the mofo for now..
if you want to know what it does read all the source code you've just downloaded if you understand c++ of course, make command means compile (you can read it in text editor too) other commands you can examine yourself by typing man and command i.e. man cd, hope i helped you...
im getting errors when running "make" so its not installing properly
starting to hate fedora..
i did have suse installed before but it had some installed issues.. that caused me problems but i could use my wifi.. maybe i will just go back to that
This might be totally off topic, but might be appreciated by the topic starter;
Ubuntu Linux has extensive Wireless support. My notebook was online the first time I booted (on the unsecured network from my neighboors though, not my own network..) so maybe you could try Ubuntu Linux.
