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.

And finally WHY are you dealing with 2.6.22 kernel, that is a VERY old kernel, first it is 2.6 series (we have 3.7 already) and second, the most current 2.6 series is 2.6.39 if I remember correctly and even that is more than a year old.
@email@example.com: Depending on your architecture (32/i386 or 64/x86_64) the kernel image is either created in arch/i386/boot/ or arch/x86_64/boot/ for this kernel (things have changed for the new 3.x kernels ).
BTW: wigry is correct in stating that all this is very old. Why didn't you build the current stable LFS?
PS: I've asked a moderator to move this thread to the LFS sub-forum.
LFS is quite interesting choice for a apparently relatively new Linux user. Too many ways to get your fingers burned but provides massive amount of experience and unfortunately frustration and disappointment but eventually pays off I guess.
