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 have an IBM Thinkpad 570 laptop and I have linux mandrake 10.0 installed on it. Everything works fine. I also have and Xterasys XN-2410b wireless card. I installed ndiswrapper. The driver works fine and I am able to connect to the internet. But, the problem I am having is when I try to load the driver using "modprobe ndiswrapper", the system hangs. So, I have to reboot and try loading the driver like 5 or 6 times before I can get the system and the wireless card to get working without hanging. I do not know what possibly could be the reason. I am posting the messages I got after running dmesg.
ndiswrapper: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
ndiswrapper version 0.9 loaded
ndiswrapper: driver wlanpci.sys added
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02:00.0 (0000 -> 0003)
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 0000:02:00.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 0000:00:07.0
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:02:00.0 to 64
ndiswrapper: using irq 11
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:e0:98:ac:fd:8b using driver wlanpci.sys
wlan0 (WE) : Buffer for request 8B0B too small (560<564)
Does anyone have an idea of why this is happening. Please let me know.
