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.

I've installed the linux-wlan-ng driver and everything went fine. I've also configured the wlan.conf and wlancfg-<ssid> files just like it told me. The problem i get is when i try running the command "modprobe prism2_pci" like it tells me. When i do, i get this message...
[root@linux jared]# modprobe prism2_pci
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/pcmcia/ds.o.gz: init_module: Operation not permitted
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/pcmcia/ds.o.gz failed
Seems to me like it should be looking in /etc/wlan/ and not /lib/modules/... I looked in the control center and it is seeing the prism 2.5 wavelan chipset, however the module it is using is orinoco_pci. I did an lsmod and didn't see orinoco_pci listed. How can i get this card loaded?
Look in your dmesg and see if the system initialized your card with the orinoco_pci driver. It could be it won't let the init_module work because the card is bound already. Just out of curiousity, what card is it?
