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.

Ok i think what i did is probably a simple fix with a little guiding to get me straightened out. Ok i did another FC2 fresh install, getting good at that. I decided instead of downloading a new kernel i was just going to do it with my little flashing icon, UP2DATE. Ok everything seemed to go well, wow what a new kernel version !. Well i am a tweaker and afer updating a kernel i like to go in and trim out the fat, get it nice and small. Normally i have no problem, but where is the source to this thing ??? Ok next step was to go download the kernel, which was like 22.214.171.124 something or another and unzip it into /usr/src then make my link. I then did all of the normal
Well after this reading my old instructions the /boot files looked odd, is that because they were done with Up2date ?? My grub looked like this after all was said and done.
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda2
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (126.96.36.199)
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Fedora Core (2.6.8-1.521)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.8-1.521 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
Ok the problem is the one marked 2.6.8-1.521 is the one i am on now, the 184.108.40.206 gives me a kernel panic VFS something or another error right after boot. I could care which one works as long as i can do my tweaking, i am a tweak junkie.
