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 want to get rid of MS Windows altogether but cant get soft? 56k winmodem
to work under linux 2.4.16 with Olitech driver.
Do I have a HCF or HSF modem?
Have just recompiled kernel from 2.2.17 beta to 2.4.16
Olitech driver installation says NO MATCHING INF FILES.
Perl script searches for device ID 2004 (NOT 2005!)
If modem is indeed HSF, where do I go from here?
Connexant chip on Web-Excel(Australian) 56k modem has following markings:
After searching PCI winmodem database, device ID should be 1085, 2000 or 2004.
However, as can be seen below ID is 2005.
/proc/pci contains the following entry:
