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.

Hello all; my ethernet card problem is fixed (many thanks, Jeremy).
andrewcm, I was having the same problem as you. Download the natsemi.c driver, ALONG WITH pci-scan.c, pci-scan.h, and kern_compat.h from the link provided by Jeremy (http://www.scyld.com/network/ethercard.html).
After compiling and installing both pci-scan.o and natsemi.o, and editing rc.modules, your problem should be solved.
well done, and congratulations.
Maybe I should replace corel linux with slackware. I downloaded pci-scan.c and the others suggested but it made no difference.
I can find no way to construct the natsemi.o for corel linux 2.2.16 from natsemi.c using the command given in the file. First is says "must use -0". then it says "cannot find /linux/modversions.h" - a file which doesn't exist anywhere on the corel disk.
any suggestions? should I remove corel linux and switch over to slackware?
I've been working on this for a week now. Ive been having the same problem with the FA311 in redhat 7.0
I've been to a few different sites, including the one above and downloaded everything I can find. Currently, I have compiled and installed pci-scan.c (installed .o) and natsemi.c (installed .o) using the following commands:
I don't know if I'm having the same problem as yank_, but I can't get my FA311 to work on RH7 either. Everything looks hunky-dory during the install, and 'insmod pci-scan' works fine, but when attempting 'insmod natsemi' I get the following error:
Device or resource busy
and the hint that this can be caused by incorrect parameters.
Is that message sort of a catch-all for modules that can't run, or does anyone have an idea about what I might have to do to correct this?
I am having *great* trouble getting the FA311 to work. I have downloaded the necessary files (fa311.zip, pci-scan, natsemi and the kern_compat files), but try as I might I cannot get them to compile. I get errors like not being able to find the linux/modversions.h file, and no compilation. Does anyone have any idea what to do...? I am using Storm 2000 with kernel 2.2.16
Hey everyone.. netgear released new drivers if you havn't figured it out already
go to http://www.netgear.com .. drivers for RH6.x and RH7.0 are both avaliable. I got the fa311 to work in 7.0 first try with the new drivers.. now i just have to figure out how to get it to connect through my router to the cable modem
which, of course, gives me the same error. I haven't tried the suggestions listed here yet - earlier in the thread, but just wanted to mention that the new drivers netgear has out for rh6.x don't seem to be working for me. I am, of course, new to installing things on linux machines although I'm not new to the os. Any help is *much* appreciated.
