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'm trying to install the latest Orinoco drivers, in FC2, for my wireless PCMCIA card.
I downloaded the file orinoco-0.13e.tar.gz and the patch file orinoco-0.13.e-patch.diff that allows the card to be placed in monitor mode.
I successfully extracted the files and patched them with the .diff file.
After running the 'make' command I get the follwing. I'm guessing that since I've updated the files recently that some minor changes may have been made to orinoco_cs.c (I have no idea, I'm just guessing from looking at the output).
What do I need to do to get a successful compile?
Thank you for any help extended.
