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.

Anyone here has this adapter for laptops? Wireless -G-Adapter from Microsoft. I have a AMd Athlon XP-M 2800+ 704mb DDR 64mb ATI Radeon MObolity Synaptics Touchpad uh. DSL/Router (Gateway Versalink Wireless WEstell Modem) and also a Linksys WRT54G Wireless G Router.
If anyone here knows, has any experience or has this equipment please help me. I never got to run it sucessfully in Windows and dont know how to do this on Linux.
Please note that the pciids are not the same for this card, so, following driver installation into ndiswrapper, you'll need to create some symlinks, like so (as root): ln -s 14e4:4320:1028:0002.conf /etc/ndiswrapper/14e4:4325:1414:0003.conf ln -s 14e4:4325:1414:0003.conf /etc/ndiswrapper/14e4:4325.conf
Option 2: Use a homegrown driver INF file that I have created, along with the same SYS file from above.
It has the benefit that you will not have to create any symlinks. I'm hosting it for your convenience at http://ankhcraft.com/drivers/mn720-ankh.zip Please note that I do not provide any warranty for this INF file that I have created, express or implied. All I can say is that it works for me, and I use this card heavily (with this driver).
Please be warned that this driver does not play nice with Linux hosted NDIS emulation wrappers in general. In order to get this driver work with ndiswrapper specifically, you must make sure you do NOT have the card plugged into the cardbus slot when you insert the ndiswrapper module. You'll get a kernel panic if you do, and then you're toast. Plug the card in afterward. After this, it works wonderfully. Also, it is worth mentioning that the Microsoft driver is known to be unstable when used with LinuxAnt's driverloader. You may experience random system lockups, even though you may avoid the kernel panic mentioned above. I would suggest that you stay away from this driver, period, under Linux.
