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 Googled this error - wifi%d: unable to attach hardware: 'Hardware self-test failed' (HAL status 14) - and found a number of other with the same problem. Many are using Ubuntu. Some are using older MadWiFi versions.
I saw no definitive "fix," although there was some suggestion of success using the SVN MadWiFi code or Edgy vs. Dapper.
Could someone tell if the wlan should have the module name defined in the network confugarion of yast? I see empty fields in where it reads modules name. for the 3com card there reads 3c59x which is the card's model, so I wonder if I should try putting something in there?
Any knows about this?
Well, for whatever reason, I got it working tonight. I'm writing this via my wireless network. I do use DHCP for my wireless and the nameserver in my resolv.conf is the address of my router which negotiates my DSL connection. I take it that's normal?
I've seen that - the gateway IP address showing up as the DNS server. I prefer to use the discrete IPs of my ISP's servers, but I don't know why resolv.conf would be populated like yours instead of mine. Might be an artifact of the router.
Who cares? You're connected, and that's what counts.
