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.

Intel is one of the best companies for offering linux support in my opinion. Not only do they usually offer patches to kernel they also have full support on their product web pages. Usually support is not needed.
I'd think that the actual name of the nic would be helpful and going to Intel web pages would yield best results if Suse / Opensuse didn't offer it.
This is what I did, my teacher lent me a pci NIC card and it lit up as soon as I plugged it in. Intel Pro/100 S desktop adapter. I'm sure someone suggested this but I had to try all avenues for my own educations. Thank you all for your assistance. You don't have to turn off the onboard NIC to get it to work on a ASUS Z87-Plus so I hope this helps someone.
