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.

Hi all, I'm fairly new to linux, I can't get puppy to connect to ANY wireless network, protected or not. The driver autodetected my wireless card (IBM high rate wireless LAN with modem II) as an Intersil Prism 2.5 chipset, but it will not work. I wonder if the driver is corrupted, or if I should just use ndiswrapper with the windows drivers. Obviously, I would prefer to use native linux drivers, but the wrapper will not tax the system too much if I use that option. I have heard that these laptops are very linux friendly, and I ran xubuntu on it for quite some time with no big problems. My home router is a Belkin F6D4230-4 V3. This thing will not show up at all, but my family's old linksys will, I can't connect to it either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Ok, the first command did nothing, just put me back at the prompt.
I could not figure out how to copy and paste from the terminal in this distro, so I just screencapped the output, which is in the two files I have attached.
