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 trying to recompile my kernel and so far Im only having trouble with my network modules. I have nforce2 ethernet 10/100. I am using the Linux Kernel v2.6.5 Configuration tool. When I select the correct ethernet 100 option it asks me to choose my card below. I can't figure out what type of card it falls under - there is no nforce option. I'm not very knowledgable about hardware.
Thanks for any help.
cool thanks for the quick reply one more question... if i install the driver from the nvidia sight, will it become an option in the kernel configuration tool, or will i need to load it manually.
As for nvidia video driver, the compilation and installation of
the module is simple, you download the nforce driver package
(ia32 for 32 bits intel/AMD processors or AMD64 for AMD 64bits)
Then you just execute it and follow the on screen instructions http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
