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 ndiswrapper on my laptop running kubuntu 5.04 and have installed my bcmwl5 drivers. When I type "sudo ndiswrapper -l" It tells me drivers are installed and hardware s present. When I type "sudo ifconfig" it shows my eth0, lo, and wlan0 are present. I try to use "sudo iwlist wlan0 scan" but it comes back with "no scan results"! This card has worked in every other distrobution as well as previous versions of ubuntu...Also when I type "sudo ifup wlan0" it says "Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0"...Any help?
Then try booting with acpi=off (at the end of the kernel comand line:
edit it in grub or in /boot/grub/grub.conf).
you do not have to rerun grub after making changes
(this is an example, look for the line that is similar and add the acpi=off to the end. Do not copy this line and add it to ur grub!!!!!!)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc1/part1 ro acpi=off
