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.

Hmm, it's been some time since last post, all because I dont really know what to configure/make/install first. I went for binutils because that's where LFS kicks off, but get compile errors...
nothing to do for all
...fair enough...maybe I did'nt use the right version. I used 2.14 for this. At the time of writing, the configure is working for 2.21.1 and I'm not in a positive mood about this. The thing is that the configure does end nicely, leaving a makefile behind...
Okay, so, this approach failed. And...I think I know why.
Starting a Live CD (any Live CD) creates a file system...in memory. Installing anything makes that install in ... memory. I tried to persist that to disk by copying, but to no avail.
Okay, so, all went well...the kernel compiled like a (slooooooooooow) dream - it took some time, but it's there. a vmlinuz was placed in the boot partition, now I'm stuck with the grub.
Grub (as all insiders know) has dependencies, m4 is one of them, well, bison needs it. M4 compiled, as soon as I downloaded the right one.
Bison is stuck in mid-make. Dunnow what ticktocks here, yet....
Maybe a redo is in order, just to "clean up the act"...
