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 checked around and found other people with some issues and decided to get the
latest drivers for the pro/wireless 2100 card.
how do i go about getting them installed......
i read on sorceforge.net something about the kernel modules need to be redone.
also about ipw-tools?
can someone help?
i am running slackware 10.1 kernel 2.4.29
how do i get my wireless card set-up on eth1?
when i do iwconfig i get "no wireless extensions"
i've tried dmesg | grep eth1(at the console prompt) and still get nothing. it looks as though its not even there
any help would be appreciated.
