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 need ndiswrapper in order to use my belkin 7050 wireless adapter. (if there is already a linux driver feel free to tell me) but when i unpacked the .tar.gz i downloaded form their site into my root folder, i ran 'make distclean' without hassel but when i did 'make' it said that
Can't find kernel build files in /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp/build;
give the path to kernel build directory with
KBUILD=<path> argument to make
when i checked /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp/build everything was fine, do i need to reinstall the source, how do i get it to work. This is all on a fedora core 5, no apt-get or package, just yum.
I found another post here in linux q's that is exactly like min but the kid found a native driver.
I have the same problem, so first download this package:
rpm -ivh http,//rpm,livna,org/livna-release-5,rpm
after that download the ndiswrapper with:
yum install ndiswrapper.i386
if you have another kernel, the kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp install automatically when ypu reboot the PC, inthe grub select the kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp and its all
you have ndiswrapper install!!!
follow the instruccions to install the driver in the page ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/
mmm I have an execute with this instruccions, probably you can use :
depmod -a ; modprobe ndiswrapper ; iwconfig wlan0 essid Sistemas ; iwconfig wlan0 key 123456789 ; ifconfig wlan0 192.168.15.17 ; ifconfig wlan0 up ; /sbin/route add default gw 192.168.15.6 ; service network restart
and modify /etc/resolv.conf with your server dns:
