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.

Me again, I still don't really know whats happening, I upgraded to Suse 10 from suse9.1 full install, because I couldn't install the drivers for my wireless usb network card, and guess what, I still can't, I get nearly the same errors too, could someone please take a look at this a let me know what you think, yet again any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I am still new to it all. Heres what I get when I try and run the 'make' command from the untared driver module directory :
I could be missreading something here, so take this advice with caution.
In the messages, I see at least one .ko (kernel module). In order to compile new kernel modules, you must have the kernel sources installed. By default, SuSE does not intall the kernel sources; you have to do that: Control Center -> YaST2 -> Software -> Instal and Remove, then select Package Groups from the dropdown dialogue. Scroll down to ZZZall and click on that to get the full list of packages. Look for kernel sources rpm and select that to install.
Then try to compile your driver again. If it's successful, you can then go back into YaST and remove the kernel sources if you're short of hard disk space.
