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.

i have a microsoft wireless usb internet adapter to connect to our network. i am currently switching over to linux and i pretty much need to know how to use the adapter. The networking guide in linux has some models of adapters built in but not the microsoft one. if anyone could help that would be great.
I'm new to the linux world also. Mine is a Microsoft USB wireless network adapter model MN-510, 802.11b/Wi-Fi. Detailed instructions would be greatly appreciated, but any info will help. I am running RH 9.
Its a prism2 device. As far as I know the only project's drivers that cover that are the www.linux-wlan.net prism2 drivers. They don't work through normal "iwconfig" commands either, they have a program from configuring the card that is special to their drivers. The documentation with them is rather solid, post back if you get stuck.
