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 installed 64 bit RHEL-5 (kernel version -2.6.18-92.el5) on my PC. now i am updating the kernel to 2.6.18-164..6.1.el5. i got following error:
[root@localhost linux]# cd /usr/src/linux
[root@localhost linux]# make

To upgrade the kernel, I would download the RPM for the new kernel and do the regular rpm -ivh, and then reboot the server to boot into the new kernel. But this would work only if you have the Redhat Subscription.
