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.

The VIA UniChrome driver <linux-fbdev-kernel-bin_20050527.tgz> (downloaded from <forums.viaarena.com>) is specially targetting to Fedora Core 4. However, its Readme instructions do not work, as I describe bellow.
Here is Step1 (for linux kernel 2.6...., under Fedora Core 4):
Step1: Change to folder /usr/src/linux-2.6
# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6
where "linux-2.6" should be replaced with the exact name in user's setting.
Matters concern the fact that no directory such as /usr/src/linux-2.6 exists after installing FC4. There exists /usr/src/redhat instead, with 5 empty subdirectories inside: /BUILD, /RPMS, /SOURCES, /SPECS and /SRPMS. So I tried to replace "/linux-2.6", from above, with each of the 6 variants, in turn. That is:
# cd /usr/src/redhat
# cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
# cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS
# cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
# cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
# cd /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS
In each of the above variants I tried to continue according to driver's Readme
Step2: Configuring the kernel module
# make menuconfig
The machine's answer was the same, no matter on the variant to try:
make: *** No rule to make target 'menuconfig'. Stop
Could you please help me to put the right directory instead of /usr/src/linux-2.6
