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've got one of the new USB Vodafone Mobile connect cards.I used to have the PCMCIA version but my new laptop doesn't have any PCMCIA card slots.
Anyway I can't seem get this to work in SUSE. It's basically a bog standard broadband (fast) modem.
The only way I can get this to work currently is via a WINDOWS Virtual machine running as a Guest under VMWARE. The Kernel didn't need to be re-compiled to recognize this USB device - it's not a disk and doesn't have a file system.
It's a bit silly to have to bring up an entire Windows Virtual Machine just because I need to use Vodafone Mobile Connect on the road.
Before you say why not simply use a WiFI / wireless connection -- please read on.
These type of cards are actually fine since you can use them on the move for example whilst travelling on Trains etc etc. These work wherever a mobile phone service is available. - Wi-FI / wireless access points are fine if you are in a static locataion which isn't always my case - so I'd be out of range after a minute or two and these days a lot of Hotels - especially the better standard ones charge outrageous prices for accessing their WIFI connections so an unlimited subscription to a service like mobile data connect is well worth the money --speed is also around 1.5 MB now so it's fine when travelling.
Similar services are provided by O2 etc etc. I just happen to have VODAFONE but the same should apply to any service provider.
