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.

using the drakconnect wizard provided on mandrake 9.2 i am trying to set up my LAN connection, after i specify that LAN is what i want to configure and click next i am sent back to the first step of the wizard. i found some information off of a forum about trying to use an nforce2 mcp networking adapter. i am very new to linux and feel that i might of messed up some commands while trying to follow the instructions. what i tried to do was to patch the kernel with kernel-188.8.131.52mdk-1.1mdk.src.rpm then i installed the source code provided on nvidia's website (after compiling it). having felt that i did everything i ran drakconnect only to run into the same problem. i am new to linux and i'm not familiar with the commands at all. can someone tell me specificly how to solve this problem?
i'm not sure if this means anything but i have no LAN networking card it is directly on my abit nf7 motherboard and i'm trying to connect to currentlink (which i don't recommend at all, highly unreliable)
kernel-184.108.40.206mdk-1.1mdk.src.rpm is the kernel source i used.
NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm is what i found on nvidia's website.
i compiled both of these and nothing changed.
is there anything besides the rpmbuild --rebuild *filename* that i need?
i'll do some more reading but since i'm new to linux a lot of the jargon isn't making sense to me.
