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 have a new sarge net install that I have been trying to compile a new 2.6.6 kernel for.The boot hangs after freeing unused kernel memery,just stops.In /boot there isn't a initrd.img for this kernel.I have done this before on other machines without any problems,what am I missing,thanks david
I've had this problem too. The kernel should work without an initrd but I've never managed to get it working without one even if the fielsystems are compiled into the kernel (+automatically mount at boot selected)
I can use a kernel-image I get from apt but I get a lot of errors because it is looking for stuff I don't have.The last kernel I did myself was 2.6.3 and it went well.I'm unable to get a 2.6.6 or 2.6.7 to work,stops right after freeing swap after the file system says it has been mounted then just hangs.thanks for the help,david
P.S. I'm going to do one and just take out one thing like laptop support and see what happens!

You did compile in the chipset your mobo uses right and the ide drivers are compiled and not modules. Just make sure you have the drivers compiled in for your mother board, file system, and IDE. That should get it to work. It sounds like you are just missing one little thing.
