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 just got my lucent winmodem to work with Mandrake 9.2 but i can't get the modem to be detected when i boot up. i can get it to work through the console but would like to be able to just use kppp to dial out and connect. i was told that adding a command to the /etc/modules.conf file would load the module for my modem at start up but i get a
"The file could not be saved. Please check if you have write permission."
error every time i try. how do i set permissions for this?
also, is modprobe lt_serial the command i would want to put in there and is so would i just enter it as is?
i know how to log on as root in the console but havn't not found anyway to log on as root in the konqueror browser (which is how i'm accessing the file). do i have to access the file through the console then to edit it and if so how would i do that?
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
