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 am using Mandrake 10.1 Community and when I try configuring my NIC through the MCC, it pops up "disabling IRQ 23" and that's it, when it says it's finished configuring it never works. Oddly enough, on a completely different hard drive I am trying to install Gentoo 2004.3 and when trying to configure the same NIC, it says " disabling IRQ 23, nobody cares" . I am using an Intel Pro 100 Management NIC. I am about to believe my omputer is haunted !..Please Help !
I finished setting up an Intel Server MB with both 100baseT and Gigabit Ethernet Integrated NICs of that type and Mandrake 10.1 had no problems as long as ACPI was enabled... which it is not by default!
