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 have a broadcom bcm43xx card myself, you can look at this page to see if these drivers support your card. If they do, holler back, I'll help you get it working (It is a pain, because they require a kernel patch, recompile, and lottsa twiddling). Also, they only support 11M, not the G speeds of 54.
ndiswrapper-1.16 requires gcc 3.4 or higher
To installe ndiswrapper do:
make (your kernel has to be compiled with gcc 3.4 also or make will exit with errors)
If you get no errors, then:
ndiswrapper -i broadcomdriver.inf (make sure the .inf and sys files are in the same directory you install ndiswrapper from)
If it tells you hardware is present, then:
if everything goes well you can add
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper to your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file and it will be loaded at boot
I have the braodcom 4318 card and the driver is bcmwl5.inf and bcmwl5.sys. They should be found on the windows cd that came with your computer
CP4S (Crux Ports For Slack) is a very good ports-system. I've added some custom repos, and at the moment my ports-tree contains just about 4000 ports. I know that more than 5000 ports exist out there, but i haven't added all repos since i didn't need them.
