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.

First, with the considerable, and crucial, help from a number of people on the SpeedTouch mailing list, I managed to get my SpeedTouch 330 modem working with Kubuntu, using *The Linux Kernel SpeedTouch Driver for Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog* procedure.
Now I wish to use my modem to connect to the internet with Yoper. I have been unable to find any *official Linux* procedure to do this. I have tried a number of *unofficial* schemes, all without success, and, in desperation, yesterday spent best part of three hours working my way through *The Linux Kernel SpeedTouch Driver on Linux from Scratch*. To be honest, I did not quite follow ALL of the procedure as, being a Linux novice, I chickened out of doing the 'kernel compiling' bit, as I wouldn't know what I was doing and would probably screw things up. Probably because of this, it didn't work.
Does anyone know of a foolproof procedure which will enable me to access the internet using my SpeedTouch 330 modem with Yoper?
Second, in desperation, I have been trying to use the 'Linux Kernel Speedtouch Driver for Ubuntu Warty Warthog' procedure to solve my problem on Yoper. Towards the end of this procedure, under the heading: *Tidying Up*, we are instructed to : Open /etc/modules with a text editor:
Add these two entries.
When I call up /etc/modules with a text editor, eg, vi, I cannot open it for editing. How can I add the two entries?
On the other hand, am I wasting my time trying to use this procedure for Yoper?
