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.

Having tried Knoppix Live & subsequent HD install, I moved onto KANOTIX because of it's alleged improved support for USB devices.
I tried the latest live KANOTIX cd & it all works fine, however having nstalled it to my hard drive using kanotix-installer all appears fine except I can't connect to the internet via my Alcatel router! I tried the configurator tool (sorry can't remember exact name & now as in work) which finds en0 & ra0 but then says can't find anything else, however I think I'm looking in wrong place as I get the same results when using the Live version & am also able to connect to the net.
If anyone could suggest a config file I may need to edit or a startup option it would be most appreciated. FWIW When the HD version is booting the green light will be on next to the network cable on the router but as it goes through the boot sequence (possibly examining hardware) it goes off never to return!
My system spec is:
Kanotix 2005-03 (both live & HD install report the same results from uname -a command)
Alcatel Speed Touch Pro/4 router
Asus A8V Deluxe mob
AMD Athlon 64 3.8Ghz cpu
& all is as it should be. The plug & play in BIOS is also disabled. So the ethernet is up & working but no ADSL but it still work if I boot KANOTIX off the live CD!! So still no wiser & currently on the net using the SimplyMEPIS cd but I did prefer KANOTIX running from my hard-drive!
