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.

How do you find them? You find them at the store...
That is something I was going to bring up before but I forgot, WiFi scanning applications (or WiFi anything, really) in Linux is very hardware dependent, and you need to have the proper supported hardware for it to work.
yes.... this is why Im thinking about buying a pcmcia card with other chipset ... I have found a Orinoco who seens to be very supported... but I will have to buy from us, so I will have to wait a litle more time to put my hands in this card
Chipsets known to NOT WORK:
Broadcom - No linux drivers, only useable with ndiswrapper or
linuxant wrappers around windows drivers.
Airport Extreme - Really a Broadcom, with no rfmon in the OSX drivers.
Atmel - There is a hack for pseudo-monitor in USB. There is
currently no equivalent hack for PCMCIA.
HermesII - Proxim successor to the Orinoco/HermesI. No support
yet in the drivers, may be available in the future.
ndiswrapper - Anything using ndiswrapper is using WINDOWS drivers
AND CAN NOT BE USED WITH KISMET.
the problem is that I work in a project with Wirelles ISP and need scanning tools right now because its not something just personal... unfortunately I have to use windows and netstumbler everytime... what is a bad, I just wanted to do everything with linux...
