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.

For two days now I've been trying to install wireless into SuSE 9.2 but with no results! The PCI card installed is a belkin f5d7000 using the ralink rt2500 chipset, SuSEplugger has detected it but YaST hasn't.
I heard that you can use ndiswrapper (I installed 0.10 with my installation) on most cards, however I have no idea how to use ndiswrapper, me being an absolute newbie.
Thanks in advance.

I chose one the ROLINE RWA-54 W-LAN 54 PCI Adapter (this uses the same chip) which was on the list, me assuming it would be similar, but obviously does not have to much incommon with the belkin f5d7000!

it seems to detect the router, so what gone wrong!?!
note when I typed the ndiswrapper -l it showed the rt2500 driver installed but it also said hardware present,fuzzy. Also Kwi-fi shows the card working but when I scan kwi-fi cannot find any networks.
