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 a gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R motherboard. I have installed Kubuntu 7.04 on my harddrive and the internet connection wont connect when i boot kubuntu. When i look at the gigabyte website and find my motherboard, it says to download the linux driver for my chipset from the chipset's site, but when i find my chipset, a Intel P35 Express, it doesn't give me an option to download any linux drivers. Can someone help me please????
Weird, I have the very same one, REALTEK 8111/8168. It has been supported on all distributions that I have tried for the last half year or so. Then again, I've never been a KDE fan so I never tried Kubuntu. It works fine with a recent Ubuntu, though. And with Fedora, Debian, Suse, Sabayon, CentOS, Mepis, Mandriva, BSD, Solaris ...
If you really can't get it working, consider switching to a different distro or installing the driver yourself. Visit REALTEK and download the proper driver (REALTEK 8111) and make sure to get the latest one available (the earlier versions were rather buggy). The zipped file should contain instructions on installing.
