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.

alright on the computer im trying to install slackware on, there's a built in video card and sound card and lan and some other stuff. well the problem is that all the drivers for them are on a main board cd that came w/ my mother board but all the drivers and stuff were meant for a windows pc and the company that makes them (SiS some no name brand company) dosn't have a linux driver version is there anything i can do or am i just screwed? or can i try to use a program like wine to install the drivers or is wine not designed to handle things like that. any input would be really useful.
I know it is all built into the motherboard, I was just wondering if you knew what SiS chipset it was and what eithernet controller it was and everything. Eitherway, I have installed linux on SiS hardware before with no problem.
oo ok thanx that makes me feel alot better but man im having install trouble dont get linux instal this being my first time and all the whole formating harddisk thing is so confusing or maybe im jus 2 much of a newbie but i'll figure it out
i have the drivers for the video card but they were meant for a windows computer. so i cant really use them that was the point of me making this thread to see if there was a way to load the drivers off the disk so i would have good resolution i have a voodoo 3 card i could use but i have 2 screens and i need the voodoo 3 for the other monitor which i havn't set up yet. is there anything i can do to get the driver files of the disc and install them to my system would wine help?thanx for all responses
