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 am having trouble getting my "Smartdisk CF/SM usb card reader" working with RH9. Googling and searching these forms has provided some help but not enough to help me solve my problem. This thread was the most informative...
(this sites main url plus) /questions/archive/18/2003/09/2/90977 Sorry, the site will not let me post the full url.
the module usb-storage is loaded using 'modprobe usb-storage'
Then I use 'tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages' to watch what happens when I plug in my usb reader with the smartmedia card in it and this is what apears...
Oct 19 18:16:48 localhost kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.2-2, assigned address 3
Oct 19 18:16:48 localhost kernel: usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x917/0x1) is not claimed by any active driver.
Oct 19 18:16:51 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no modules for USB product 917/1/83
First, how do I ensure the usb-storage driver is used for this device once it it plugged in? (see message above, "...is not claimed by any active driver.")
Is there an entry that I need to put in /etc/modules.conf specific to my card reader?
In the messages above, according to the thread I listed at the top, I should see which device the kernel assignes the device, ie /dev/sda1, etc.
Any information that anyone could provide me with, I would appreciate tremendously.
