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.

but i cannot find this directory can u help
Did the reedme say how to install it? Sometimes it is different than;
sometimes sh something sh When you untar it don't su to root only for the install,after you untar it you will need to cd to the new directory for configure ect.I'm no expert by any means so google and check around,When I have installed drivers they go where they are suppose to and I don't do anything.If you need to create the dir,I would try;
mkdir ddk this part I don't get but someone will help you out ddk-6.2.1/networks/src/hardware/devn good luck and hang in they you will get it.
