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 am learning LFS 5.1.1. The reason not going to 6.0 is that I don't have 2.6 kernel as required in 6.0. I followed the instructions and preceeded to the ncurses section in chapter 5, where I got compilation errors as follows:
well as far as not going to 2.6. you can download a bootable iso image for the LFS 6.0. It contains the 2.6 kernel and has all the packages, lynx, and the entire manual. Download and burn it and you can work from there. This way you can build a 2.6 without even installing one.
Finally I figured out the problem: I didn't correctly generate g++ in previous step (gcc pass 2). I really don't know how I can miss that but keep preceeding. It is just amazing that I can go this far.
