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.

Any of your guys got ndiswrapper working in Ubuntu Hoarry? I got it isntalled , and modprobe load it without any issues, however when I did a iwlist scan on my wlan0, it doesn't do anything, but when I put in my WEP key and set the ency in OPEN mode, iwconfig found my AP, but somehow i can't get it to talk to it!!!
I had the same toruble with my card which uses the RealTek 8180 driver, and it turned out I just needed to use the .inf file from RealTek's website instead of the one that came with my card. When I used the driver that came with my card, doing 'ndiswrapper -l' resulted in a message recognizing that the driver and hardware were installed, but 'dhclient wlan0' was unsuccessful. I uninstalled the driver, installed the driver I downloaded from RealTek, and I was surfing wirelessly. I love Ubuntu! Now that I've achieved success on my wife's old crap computer, I can stop using WindowsME on mine!
I was having a similar problem with a dlink dwl-520 based on the atheros 5212 (I know madwifi but it didn't work) and it turned out I had to get the drivers off the cd instead of the ones on the website and it worked beautifully. I tried Linuxant's driverloader as well but that kept dropping out.
