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.

Another interesting error: [root@localhost root]# modprobe acx100_pci
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/net/acx100_pci.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/net/acx100_pci.o failed
modprobe: insmod acx100_pci failed
I have a DWL-650+ working with Mandrake 9.2. It sounds like you do not have the kernel source installed.
In Mandrake 9.2 the driver is located at /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/3rdparty/acx100
As you probably have read there is an older version of the acx100 driver included in Mandrake 9.2.
What I have done is compile my own driver and replace the one included in Mandrake 9.2 with the one I compiled. Once you have done that you can run harddrake and configure the module, then you can run the network setup tool which will create every thing you need. Then edit the ifcfg-eth0 file to add RATE, KEY, ESSID.
