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.

ok Ive been trying to get my Intel Easy PC Camara to work for sometime now. Im a toal newb to the linux scene. I recently got SuSE 8.2, and everything seems to be ok, but my webcam doesnt want to work. I opened it up and found that it had a spca508 chipset. So I dl the src from soundforge, and tried to compile it. doesnt work. I sl the src kernel from SuSE and installed it, but then what. I did a make cloneconfig and then a make dep. Was that all? I then tried to recompile the module again and get this with I try to insmod
linux:/home/woody/spca50x # make

spca50x.o: kernel-module version mismatch
spca50x.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.204GB-athlon
while this kernel is version 2.4.20-4GB-athlon.
How do I fix this. there is alot of things that I cant compile because this same reason.
