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.

If modprobe did not return errors, then the module should be loaded. Run "lsmod" (no quotes) to confirm that it has been loaded. (lsmod lists the kernel modules). Assuming you see it, then run "ifconfig" and post the results. Likewise, please post the output of "lspci" -- J.W.
1. Do you see 3c509 in the output of lsmod? There usually are a lot of sound-related modules, but obviously those are independent of the NIC.
2. Please post the output of lspci, which will show the details of your equipment, which is what we're trying to find out -- J.W.
So, whats up?
It seems the module is loaded given my last post but i cannot go ifconfig start without getting an error.
I'm not sure where to begin...
I want to install Mandriva but I believe the same problem will exist.
