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 hope I didn't make a mistake upgrading to MDK 9.2.
Everything went OK on the install except for setting up my video card and my modem. The installation was able to identify both, but did not have the right drivers.
My video card is an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro. The Radeon(fglrx) driver that came with MandrakeLinux9.2 does not work with my card. I downloaded the new driver from ATI (in a WinXP session) and tried to install the RPM. I get an error that the file "/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2" from the new driver conflicts with the file installed from XFree86-4.3.
I also tried to "update" the new driver, and even tried to rename the old file and reinstall...same error.
How do I install the driver with this conflict?
I have the beta source for the Conexant HSFlinmodem, which worked fine for Redhat 9.0. When trying to "make install", I get an error that "KERNELSRC does not point to a proper directory (/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/build).
Any thoughts on this? I did not see that variable in the makefile file.
I found out that the driver exists for MDK9.2, but does not come with the download version.
i know for sure that the download edition of mdk9.2 does not have the kernel source on the cd's
if you are using the download edition
you need to go and download the kernel source yourself
(it's only 20MB or so)
