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'm trying to install VMWare in a RH 8 system it doesn't work because it doesn't have a pre-built module for it's kernel... it asks for C header files to create a module, but those I found aren't from the same kernel... what to do? did I found the wrong header files, or do I need to upgrade them?
heck, my problem is creating the vmmon, vmware 3.2 doesnīt have one for rh8īs kernel, and when I try to create one, it says that didnīt find C header files for my kernel, the directory it has by default doesnīt exist, based on it, i get the one with the best match (i donīt remember wich one right now) and I canīt find such header files, how did you install it?
i'm really new to linux, so i have no idea what you're talking about
But all i did was
- install vmware
- created a vm and changed the config for the cdrom to point to the iso image file of rh8.
- clicked power on
- followed the setup instructions in rh8 (and vmware help - very important cuz u have to install things like vmware tools, etc.)
I guess one of us hasnīt been understood, i want to use rh8 as host, to run Windows XP via VMWare, and as my english isnīt that good (Iīm from Brazil), i understood that you have vmware for windows running rh8...
I managed to install vmware 3.1 to my redhat8.0 system,
I have xp pro installled (in fat32) in dual boot and created a vitual machine as to boot it. Booting starts fine but hangs up just when that XP image should have come up. Any one know about that isue?
When Running VMWare, it emulates an entire PC, even BIOS, etc, and Win XP can't stand too much hardware change... if you change too much hardware, you'll get a blue screen... keep your Windows partitions, but install winxp via vmware, open your xp virtual machine and it's setup, make it boot via CD-ROM, and re-install XP, then it will work in VMWare, but not out of it... I guess this only happens with XP, I didn't test 95, ME ou 2k yet, but 98 worked fine
