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.

Well, it took a lot of work and a lot of "start overs", but I finally completed the LFS project. But, got all the way to the to the final kernel compile and it just would not do it.
After the make command, I got an error to the effect:
"unexpected EOF. "
Problably something in the make script, but I could not find the error. So, I attempt to make -i and force the compilation ignoring this error. All through the compile, it was rife with errors, something mainly to do with "time errors."
What the heck, I tried to boot into it anyway, configured my grub file to boot to it and I got the error:
"This image is too large to fit into memory. Try 'make bzimage.'
All through the process, everything went fine and according to plan. I did not expect the kernel compile to fail since everything else went to flawlessly.
I was using the live cd. I will format and try again (unless someone can suggest a way to get this kernel to compile and save this one.)
Any thoughts or help would be appreciated for my next attempt.
Keep posting Mate, You make me feel good when i read your posts and see the problems you are having.I am finding that most of the problems I have I have to fix by trial and error, or pick up from a reply to someone elses post,needless to say it looks to me like you are rushing your project, this is when you miss that little bit, you know the silly thing. Like a dash in the wrong place. Good Luck.
