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.

To get my Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter to work in Knoppix, it seems I will have to add the firmware to the correct firmware folder. Unfortunately, when I attempt to do so it says I must be the SU root.
I would like to know either
A. How to log in as root or
B. How to create a folder and move files in Konsole (I'm not very good with Konsole, CMD or Terminal commands; but I know how to become the root user)
Also, in an unrelated question, when trying to save my Knoppix configuration, it won't let me save to the flash drive with Knoppix on, so I have to save to another. I have two questions: Why, and what would be the best way around this? Is there a fix for this; should I partition the flash drive, having a partition for configuration and files; or will I just have to lug two flash drives around?
Thanks, but I know how to become the root within the Konsole. What I really want to know is how to become the root, so I can use the GUI to move my driver files to the firmware folder (which only root can edit).
