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 have a broadband connection and whenever i try and activate it it just gives an error like this..
/usr/sbin/adsl -start line 217:3424 terminated $ connect "$@" >/dev/null
i use the same connection well in windows but its just not working well with fedora!!!! can anyone interpret the error????
plzzz i need help to sort out dis matter!!!

connected to USB.....i haven't chked tat /var/log/syslog

The problem lies in the installation of USB drivers for linux fedora 7
i have a cd which came with my modem...it had linux driver (usb) for
i tried the installation following user guide but it failed when i went for make all in terminal!
i guess their is a problem with the USB driver i'm trying to install and the kernel......does any one have USB driver for linux
i have googled out but did'nt actually got a free downlaod!!!!
so if sum 1 can???
1) its the makeall that concerns me most but leaping to the other stuff you have a number of issues including the fact that Mdv and SELinux are not correctly configged. BTW I do not use it so can not offer any advice on it.
2) can you point me to the download file you tried to compile or upload it to divshare and I will have a go at compiling it.
I am not concerned that I do not have the hw, I want to see what errors I get as I know my hw and my software
