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.

Which version of win4lin are you using? Saw this on the NetTraverse website:
NOTE: If you are planning to use a 2.6 kernel, you must be running Win4Lin 5.1.10/WTS 2.5.10 or higher. Win4Lin 3.0, 4.0, and NSSE 1.1/WTS 2.0 are NOT compatible with Linux 2.6. If you have Win4Lin 5.0 or WTS 2.5, make sure you update to the latest version, using the graphical installer. The Win4Lin 5.0 version from the boxed CDROM will not work with kernel 2.6 - be sure to update to the latest using the graphical installer. Also, you must apply the mki-adapter26*.patch file. For 2.4 kernels, continue using mki-adapter.patch.
