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.

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.

Skip to the last paragraph if you want the short and simple question.
I turned on my laptop today after a lunch of bawls and tacos. The good mood that high doses of caffeine and Taco Bell had put me in quickly faded as I noticed that my MBR was SOL. While I have no idea what happened, everyone in the building using a certain router has experienced the same nightmare I just got done with. Anyway, I finally got done getting my Vista partition up and running, and I turned to get Ubuntu Server 6.06 up. After I got everything up, I did the last thing I always do before loading data onto the HD: I checked to make sure my network card's weren't as SOL as my hard drive had been.
Anyway, here's where the problem comes in: I've got a new Broadcom BCM4318 [Airforce One 54g] 802.11g wireless card I initially only used with Windows. I figured I would go ahead and use it with Linux too. While the device manager knows what the card is, it doesn't know the device type. I was just wondering if anyone knew how to get this card working properly.
