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.

The research I've done suggests that not all of the ia32-libs are installed so I ran apt-get install ia32-libs from command line which gives me this log:
root@bt:~# apt-get install ia32-libs

ia32-libs is already the newest version.

I am unsure why it says that fglrx is not configured. I did install the ati-driver-installer-10-4-x86.x86_64.run driver via command line, (as System>Administration>Hardware drivers gave me the error: "SystemError: installArchives() failed") and it worked fine.
Also, if you know how I can fix the possible missing firmware errors, I would appreciate that as well. I have searched those errors but found nothing useful so far as fixing them.

Reason: Moderator note: removed the direct download link.
I am unsure. The firefox I'm using came with my OS when I downloaded and Help>About firefox doesn't give me much info.
Anyway, I solved the module issue apparently there are 3 lib folders (lib, lib32, and lib64), I checked each of the mentioned modules via readelf -h <modulename>. apparently the lib modules were ELFCLASS64 so I just copied the modules from lib32 (after verifying they were ELFCLASS32) into lib.
As for the fglrx issue (which I was also having on my desktops Radeon HD5850), I followed a suggestion I found on another forum: insert the live-dvd (or flashdrive)
in the grub press TAB to edit boot
you well see somthing like this file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz
add xforcevesa noapic noapci nosplash irqpoll -- after initrd.gz
This solved the issue for both my Mobility Radeon HD4650 and my Radeon HD5850.
As for the missing firmware issue, I ran lspci -vnn to determine exactly what Network Interface Chipset I had installed (RTL8111/8168b) and which driver it was using (8169). I then downloaded the correct driver from Realtek's Website and attempted to install it via command line but I kept getting an error saying that it couldn't execute the binary file. (Sorry I can't remember exactly what it said, but that's it in essence.) I tried a couple different download types, .tar and bzip2 and ran chmod +x <filename>, but it did not solve anything for me.
So I am still having the "missing firmware" issue but the others are solved. If anyone can help me with the firmware issue I would appreciate it. :-) On second thought, I will mark this as solved as my original question is solved.
1. /lib, /lib64 for 32 & 64 bit libs respectively.
2. /lib32, /lib for 32 & 64 bit libs respectively on Debian and offspring.
That of course is replicated in /usr/, /usr/local, & /opt
file is your man.
file *.so.* |grep 32 (or 64)
For the firmware, get the names from syslog. I notice an ATI binary blob. Some kernels did not ship ATI firmware (2 files). I have R600_rlc.bin & R700_rlc.bin if you need which I had to add separately.
I am assuming the error is because my computer is using the r8169 driver so it thinks that I should have 8169 firmware when I in fact have the 8168 hardware. I am now trying to get the 8168 drivers installed with no luck.
