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 running Debian / testing on an ASUS A7V600 mobo with an onboard nic (3com / 3c940) which I could not get running. My workaround for now is to disable the onboard nic and use an old 3com 3c905. I already downloaded the 3com driver from the asus website but could not get it installed. make load returns me this error message:

Try modprobe 3c2000
Modprobe installs the module specified with all its dependencies (usually a NIC module needs other network modules to work). Insmod installs only the mdoul specified, without dependencies.
