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'm having a really hard time with madwifi, even after having it working fine in Slack 9.1 with my Netgear WG511T card. Ever since I installed Slack 10 I haven't been able to get it to build properly. I haven't downloaded a new version but I don't think there is one.
Here's what I'm getting for errors. If anyone can help me get this working I would really appreciate it.

As far as I know, everything I need in the kernel is there and I don't even know if that has anything to do with what's wrong here.
