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.

My problem was resolved.. but not entirely I can now see that the cpu can read the card.. well because the light on the card is on.. one problem though.. the instructions say
"Set up the wireless parameters for your particular environment, type: iwconfig eth0 mode managed channel x essid xxxxxxxx, replacing if necessary, "eth0" with eth1, and using your router's ssid name and channel # in place of the x's "
i typed in iwconfig and it came back as a bash and said the command was not found..
and yes i typed it in correctly.. and i am still logged in as root
is there some reason why my router wouldnt be linux compatible or does that not matter?!?!?

ok thanks... i didnt know there was a google.com/linux
i downloaded that.. untared it.. or whatever.. then Im not sure what else to do and the readme says nothing about installing it.. i tried to run the install file in the konsole and it had a whole bunch of errors.....
I really only need one command so where do i put the file that i need?
i also looked in the INSTALL file and it says either run make install or put some files in /usr/sbin/.. heres what it says..
" If I were you, I would not trust a "make install". If you feel
courageous, just do "make install". It may even do the right
thing. Actually, with the various bugfixes that happened over the
time, it nowadays tend to do the right thing.
I advise to copy the executable (iwconfig, iwspy and iwpriv)
in /usr/local/sbin or /usr/sbin. The man pages (iwconfig.8, iwspy.8
and iwpriv.8) should be copied in /usr/local/man/man8 or
In fact, if you want to use Pcmcia wireless.opts, this step is
I tried both make INSTALL and moving those files.. and to no accomplishment..
the make install says the files arent in the folder even though there are...
i tried something else and it came back the error...
"install:cannot stat `libiw.a':No such file or directory"
and i never touched or moved a libiw.a file...
hey trickykid.. it would be easier if you had some sort of chat client

Thought I'd just mention I've already pointed him to your page, long ago in the earlier portions of this thread.
Yes, I did see that, that's why I'm here. I'm assuming that he must be looking at an older, cached page (as so many appear to be, regardless of my attempts to the contrary, the bots seem to have their own mind) and may now benefit from some "live" help, things are moving rather quickly on this project.
