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.

A brief description of when/where things went wrong, or what exactly is not working:
I checked everything according to a guide ('Craig's ACX100/111 Guide for Linux') and got stuck in 'verifying the correct version of the kernel source' part.. I found out that I don't even have the directory /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build…
The stock kernel of Simply Mepis 3.3.1-1 is 2.6.10, but I couldn't find kernel-source-2.6.10, only 2.6.10 headers which I installed. I, however, decided that headers may not be enough to do the setup of the card in 2.6.10 (I read varied oppinions on this on the Net). I decided to do it in 126.96.36.199, because I was able to download all the packages that are needed (I think so…).
I installed everything (including 188.8.131.52 kernel headers and kernel-source) according to another guide. The packages were deb files.
Next I checked again under 184.108.40.206 if the ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux/version.h is present but was again unsuccesful... I don't even seem to have /lib/modules/220.127.116.11/build directory, only a link.
This is listing from 'ls -l' command done in /lib/modules/18.104.22.168 directory:

I spotted, of course, the arrows, and I read on the Net that they are links, so I thought that the source is in the /usr/src and tried to 'make' the driver as in the beginning of the 'Compiling the Driver' part of the guide but received errors. So I checked the /usr/src/ and the linux-188.8.131.52 directory isn't there either!:
