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.

wicd is a wired and wireless network manager for Linux.
Some features include:
- Ability to connect to wired and wireless networks
- Profiles for each wireless network and wired network
- Many encryption schemes, some of which include WEP/WPA/WPA2
- Compatible with wireless-tools
You will need to start the wicd service at boot by adding the following
to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd ]; then
my rc.wicd is shown to be executable. I try to add if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd ]; then
but not able to save. I'm writing these codes to these files as root.
I can't think of a reason why you would not be able to edit (and save) the files if you are doing it as a root user. Specifically, what file are you editing, with what tool, and what error message do you get when trying to save?
