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 fairly new to Linux, I have used Ubuntu before and now have a PC with Slackware 10.2 on it. I was hoping some of you may have succeeded where I have failed and could help me. Any help will be much appreciated.
I am trying to install MythTV 0.18.1 on Slackware 10.2. The problem is I have a Hauppage WinTV Nova-T DVB PCI card. This is the new card with the Conexant cx2388x chipset. I updated the kernel to 2.6.13, which was on CD2 of Slackware 10.2.
This kernel is supposed to support this card and I think it might because when I run "lsmod | grep dvb" I get the following:
I am no expert but doesn't this show that the drivers are loaded?
I have followed the guide given on the MythTV site and am now trying to install it. When I run ./configure it says "DVB Support: no" which I am assuming is not correct. So I manually use ./configure --enable-dvb and it won't install if I do this; it just seems to do a make again even though I type make install.
Under /dev I have:
video -> video0
video0 -> v4l/video0
What has gone wrong? Is it me just being stupid?
