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 asked this question before but no one seems to be answering my question. anyway here is what I wrote
I'm making a file server and the eth0 is acting up again with the same problem so I'll do all the steps. When I do ifconfig their is no line starting with eth0. all the rest are there the inet adress and the word UP. When lspci is done there is a line with sis900 in it. so after I did modprobe I got these error messeges. /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/sis900.0: ins mod/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/sis900.0 failed.
What should I do next?
I had many problems with this card with older kernels. It would work, then it wouldn't, it would work, then it wouldn't, blah! I finally got a 2.6 kernel on this machine and fixed it for good, it seems perfectly fine now.
