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.

00:1d.0 USB Controller : Intel Corp. 82801DB usb (Hub #1)(rev 01)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corp.82801DB SMBus
00:1f.6 Modem : Intel Corp 82801DB AC'97 Modem
I know that you are probably interested most in the last entry, but i do not know what the smbus is? Any Idea?
Also, in Windows the modem is registered as : SENS LT56ADW Modem, provider LT.
Another thing is that although Linux seems to have found the Ethernet port, i do not think that it works.
I tried to install Redhat 8 and it found the Ethernet port, but would not work, the modem it would not even find.
So, i then tried Mandrake 9.1, and as i am a novice, i do not even know how to set a connection up, i think, but am still not sure if it works, well i am sure that it doesn't as i could not get onto the net with it.
The version of windows i have is XP.
Hope that this is enough info, need anything more specific to try to help just ask as i am in your debt anyway.
