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.

How do I tell programs to use my usb tv tuner? I have an ATI TV Wonder. When I go into the hardware browser, it's under system devices twice. There is also my sound blaster card and three "USB UHCI Root Hub." I only have 2 USB ports, but I could imagine that the computer would list the two ports and a controller for them. Under USB devices it just says USB three times.
I've been taking a look at some of these programs for watching TV like XawTV and MythTV. They won't start for me, but it seems that I just need to configure them correctly to point to the tv card. I was looking for some quick advice on maybe how to do that since a movie is coming on later that I want to record.
One more thing... do I need BTTV? I tried to compile the kernel, but it tells me that it doesn't support the ext3 file system when I do it... even though all I use is ext3 and it DOES boots to the desktop. I just don't understand the kernel compileing thing yet. I even did a make oldconfig so it would be just like the other kernels.
