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.

hey all, it's good to be back again... gone for a while.
once apon a time I had kismet and a bunch of other things up and running thanks to your help. I decided to pick up my laptop again after a while and learn again as I used to. so here's the first of probably many conundrums... thanks for your help.
I installed kismet via the software installer (nice new interface)
I have my regular user as my suiduser=<insert user here>
I run the program from my home user home directory
here's what I get:
Launching kismet_server: /usr/bin/kismet_server
Will drop privs to kismet (495) gid 488
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
Source 0 (intelWP): Enabling monitor mode for ipw3945 source interface wlan0 channel 6...
Source 0 (intelWP): Opening ipw3945 source interface wlan0...
FATAL: socket: Permission denied
no matter what user I put in the sudouser, I get the same message. Any thoughts? Thanks
