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've Mandrake Power Pack 10.0 and i'm satisfied except for a problem.
I cannot make my Flyvideo 2000 tv cards works. It use the SAA713x chip that has native support with kernel 2.6.3-7mdk.
If i do a lspci, the system recognised the card:

But if i try a modprobe saa7134, i have this message:
[root@localhost maurizio]# modprobe saa7134
FATAL: Error inserting saa7134 (/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/kernel/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134.ko.gz): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
The dmesg return this:
Linux video capture interface: v1.00
saa7134: Unknown parameter `radio'
This card is cabable to tune fm radio but i receive the error message above.
During installation, i've manually indicates to the system, the correct parameters for this card:
Card type :Lifeview Flyvideo 2000
Tuner: Philips PAL BG_DK.
I've also used 2.4.25 kernel and the card works for a while but after few seconds, the system hangs.
In /ect/modules/conf, i've setup these parameters:
alias char-major-81-0 saa7134
options saa7134 radio=0 card=3 tuner=5 gbuffers=4
