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 am having trouble with the eciadsl setup. Here are my specs.
D-Link DSL200 USB ADSL modem
Kernel 2.6.3 (When i type 'uname -r -p' i get '2.6.3-4mdk unknown')
I have downloaded and installed:
rpm -i eciadsl-usermode-0.10-1.i386.rpm
I am supposed to patch the kernel and from what i've read i have to
patch -p1 </path/to/2.6.x-usb.patch
My problem is that this /usr/src/linux-2.6.3 does not exist. Even from root i can get as far as /usr/src but can't find linux-2.6.3. I then tried making a symbolic link in the /usr/src directory by using:
ln -s /lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdk (This path does exist)
Now i go into /usr/src and try to run the patch again 'patch -p1 </path/to/patch
This is the error i have been getting.
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

I am not sure where to point the script to in order to patch the kernel. Can anyone help me get connected??
