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 following this procedure for Myson MTD80X Based Fast Ethernet Card
Driver Installation Guide
1. Copy the compress file mtd80x-linux-2.4.x.tgz to /tmp directory,
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
cp /mnt/floppy/linux-2.4.x/mtd80x-linux-2.4.x.tgz /tmp
2. Uncompress the file
tar -zxvf mtd80x-linux-2.4.x.tgz
3. Make network adapter driver modules
4. Insert network adapter driver modules
5. Bind your card to an IP address
But after I type the command insmod for pci-scan.o and mtd80x.o
I get the following message:
[root@localhost net]# insmod pci-scan.o

If I use the command cat /proc/pci
The command cat /proc/pci returns the message:
Bus 0, device 18, function 0:
Ethernet controller: PCI device 1516:0803 (MYSON Tecnology Inc (rev. 0)
Master Capable. Latency=64 Min Gnt=32. Max Lat=64
I/O at 0x1400 (0x14ff)
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xf4101000 [0xf41013ff]
If I use the command ifup eth0
Delaying eth0 initialization
If I use the command /etc/init.d/network restart
Bringing up interface lo: ok
Bringing up interface eth0: Delaying eth0 initialization. Failed
I hope someone can help me with this!
With kind regards
