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.

Starfire & Beast_Boy are nearly identical w/ 2.6.6
After a recompile to enable /proc/net/wireless, the file is non-existant
I use make-kpkg kernel-image. After installing the new kernel image, /boot/config-2.6.6 has the right items checked but file missing...
I installed from a backup onto Raven which is the parent of the others (w/ caveat no apt-get udate && apt-get upgrade in a while).
make-kpkg, same thing.
? What is the correct way to get new features or modules installed?
Should i delete the symlink kernel-source --> linux and start over?
Does make-kpkg kernel-image only deal with adding/removing modules/features that were initially checked at first installation?
Additional Info: made booboo and didnt install debianlogo patch or selective acpi patch in Raven but had /proc/net/wireless...went back to recheck, recompile, and reinstall...BAM!, no debianlogo or ability to enter acpi's dsdt table-->rechecked config in /boot and /usr/src/linux which indicated the config was fine...but still no dice.
Please Help! It used to work when I was flipflopping between ATAPI Floppy & SCSI emulation for my modular drive and jazip and a host of numberous other changes trying to whittle down at times and add features missing during others
