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.

Just got a new laptop the other day, hp pavilion dv6575us, and after days of getting the sound and graphics working i came to spend heaps of time trying to get the wifi working.
After not suceeding with the mac80122 subsystem for the intel drivers for my wifi card, intel 4965AGN, i deceided just to use ndiswrapper. I installed the ndiswrapper and the relative intel windows xp driver. After i
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
the wifi worked. However everytime i reboot, i have to modprobe it again for it to work. This is not the worst of my problems tho, After about 10 minutes of using the wifi the whole laptop freezes. Nothing at all works, i have to hold down the power button to get the machine to turn off.
I am currently downloading gutsy gibbon in a hope that that might fix some of my problems, but as its still aplha i would rather use fiesty fawn still. I understand that since the hardware is so new it may be a problem tho, but if anyone has had similar problems please let me know how you fixed them.
