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 just installed slackware 10 and tried to get my netgear wg511 card working. I got the latest 2.6 kernel from kernel.org and compiled it with yenta_socket and prism54 as modules.
When i reboot I get the following:
Starting pcmcia services
cardmgr: no sockets found!
Activating hardware detection: /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start
The machine then locks up.
If I put the yenta in as built in the machine starts up and cardmgr claims to be watching 2 sockets. A lsmod shows that the prism54 and firware_class modules are installed but the firware_class isn't used by anything. I have no lights on the card.
The message in dmesg is:
Loading prism54 driver, version 1.2
PCI: Enabling device 0000:06:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
ACPI: PCI interupt 0000:06:00.0[A]: no GSI
eth0: could not install IRQ handler
prism54: probe of 0000:06:00.0 failed with error -5
I've found loads of references to prism54.org but the site is down so was hoping someone here could help.
The machine is a Tosh tecra 8100 laptop.
I have the pcmcia-cs package installed.
I have the firmware in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3890 the file is executable but i'm not sure if that is necessary or not. The agent is in /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent and is executable.
can anyone help?
