Question New to Linux and totally overwhelmed


Lots of information, little comprehension yet. I need to set-up wireless card and learn more. Can someone suggest how to start grasping the how to's and the flow of getting the system working?

First it depends on which Linux distribution you've installed. The first things to look at are the official documentation and the howtos for that distro.

I am new here too - but I picked up the linux system administrator's guide this weekend from amazon and plan to read through it in-depth. You may want to do the same to get a jump start.
