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'm new, but this still looks weird to me. I'm trying to look at my dmesg output to see what's going on with my usb phone, and I get this(below). I've only posted a section because it goes on a bit, but there's nothing else other than more of this sort of thing.
Is it anything to do with my internet connection starting at boot?
Thanks. I didn't know what iptables was so I've just had a quick read on Wikipedia, but will need to know more before really getting the relevance of the logs (below). I didn't get anything from /sbin/iptables -l, but did from just iptables -l.
What has happened to all the other dmesg stuff? How do I see it?! I feel I have to keep apologising as I know I'm probably asking pretty dumb questions at the moment! Sorry.
The log file may be getting truncated, and the messages of interest are lost before you are getting a chance to see them. I assume the messages of interest are being generated at boot time. Perhaps you can reboot, and re-generate the messages you are interested in. Are you sure the messages of interest contain the string 'usb'?
I am loath to suggest modifying your iptables setup, lest it put your system in jeopardy somehow. If you elect to do this, you should to it with caution.
