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.

after doing a dmesg, I get the delog info below. As a newbie, is it telling me that a) a USB card has been detected only, or b) a driver is installed and 'ready to go'? Since I can't get my card autodetected via the network gui (lots a cards listed...not a linksys USB), I'm suspecting A. If so, how do I use this useful information?
As a second question, FC-4 has a directory entitled 'wireless' under network. Has alot of 802 .ko files. How do I set up an environment (I'm less programmer than Linux enthusist) that will 'link' these existing files into the kernel?
Thanks in advance folks!!!
