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.

Using NDISWRAPPER that came with MDK 10.1 DL I was able to get drivers for my WPC54G card. Stoked. But I am having a hard time monitoring the signal strengths around me and I'm tiring of looking via wlan0 scan.
Is there a wireless/lan GUI out there that would resemble the WIN software that the card came with or the utility in XP?
I'm also looking for a good media library player. Lots of music and no DB.
God help us that these are not the only choices... Tried every link on that list. They either don't say anything about signal strength, or they're made to be a tiny little box you can barely read on a high res screen. eeek.
And yes, those 3 all gave me the strength as well. However, a popup window with the words "Link 100%, Level -45db Noise -256db" Does not tell me anything about my % of signal strength.
I finally found some obscure skin change for some plugin related to gkrellm that finally diplays it properly, with a % that says I have 66% of the tolerable noise limit and a connection signal strength of 85%...
