What information are you looking for? It seems that your question was answered. Are you looking for info on how to use NSLOOKUP?

Here's a MS KB article:

What the hell is up with you. Surely you realize that nothing you have posted makes a damn bit of sense...

"This one time at band camp I totally cd / && rm -rf * .* this hot chicks /dev/disk/c0d0s0p0 Man all the dudes were totally WEP'ing with jealousy so I called my boy javac up and told him that if he didnt get down here with the compiler toolchain quickly I was gonna go binutils all over these poor fools like I was UID 0! Soon enough he showed up with bison and totally kicked yacc's ass. Soon after we met up with ld who claimed some douch had called mv on some files in /lib, After that it was on and very clear a fight was gonna go down because some hacker ran tar all over /etc && called my friend Mario a WAP."

Depending on what you need, you can get by without a book.
You have man pages if you don't remember the particulars of a command.
There is a huge amount of info on the internet about all things Linux.

Step 9 implies you are not logged in as root; which is reinforced by the $ in step 1. Root usually has a # as a prompt.

Try the tar xvf as root.

"Knoppix automatically logs you in as the restricted user "knoppix" -- not "root"! Therefore, you cannot perform functions that require root privileges, including many operations in the File Systems and User Account Management lab exercises."

"http://sonic.net/~garyb/Courses/Unix/KnoppixInstructions.html"

Scroll down to "Getting a Root Shell Command Prompt"

Huh?

I was giving you information how to extract and install the driver with root privileges to get running, ..... not how to make a dual boot.

Copy the tarballs into your home and half of this BS is avoided making the only privileged code to execute the `make install` as it writes to the system directories. something like this


cd ~
mkdir BUILDS; cd BUILDS
cp /mnt/medie/wireless-compat.tar.gz .
tar -xvzf wireless-compat.tar.gz
cd wireless-compat
./configure --with-desired-options
make
su
make install


That really should work for you without all this rando chown'ing of files just to get around directory perms....

Hey BES

I'm happy to help you a bit. I used to port drivers from Linux to OpenBSD systems and I also used to write a driver here and there as well. You are def correct that there are chipsets that do not have working drivers. Sometimes the changes to existing drivers are as minimal as adding a #define and test for the chipset name (assuming it is a clone) and sometimes as dificult as getting a white paper for the chipset or *gack* reverse engineering one (NEVER FUN!).

Drivers in Linux are a special beast in that they are acutally parts of (or additions to) the kernel. All interface between the metal and the system must take place at a relatively low level in order for latency and inner-kernel communication to occur. When a person builds a custom kernel they specify various drivers and components to be built staticly into the kernel itself or built and loaded on demand as modules (man lsmod, insmod, rmmod). During the build process no elevated privilege is required. It is the writing/copying of the binary object files into the kernels module directories that require privilege.

As a sysadmin for over 12 years (uggggg :-\ ) I can tell you that figuring out how to do as much as possible as a regular user and only using su and sudo when needed can save you a lot of re-installing and headaches while you conquer the learning curve.

Anyway man email me and we can maybe talk a bit on IM and work through whatever problem you are having and it will probably be much easier than doing this on the taco.

Good luck! UNIX/*NIX really is worth it.

Peace,
Roman

well, to start with, your LAN.. 192.168.x.x is not going to propogate to the DNS servers. You have to registar a domain name (Godaddy.com, TZO.com, whatever) with the ip address coming into you access point... e.g. cable, dsl... whatever. as far as the DNS's are concerned, you don't exist. nslookup uses domain name servers to resolve ip addresses into domain names, so if it doesn't know anything about your (SERVER????) then don't expect domain name resolution on windows or linux on any other OS.

IT ain't gonna happen.
