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.

Building a new LFS system for myself, and stumbled across this problem. After having built the temporary system, I moved on to basic system software. Compiled/installed Coreutils, Iana-etc then went on to M4. When I ./configure, no output came of it, what so ever. I back tracked to Coreutils, and tried to ./configure there, nothing is coming of that now, either. I haven't logged out of the machine, nothing. Didn't leave the chroot environment, went straight from Coreutils, Iana-etc (iana-etc already has a prebuilt makefile), to M4 where the problems began.

The 'cannot execute binary file' error is a sure sign that you have mucked up the tool chain somehow if you do muck up the toolchain it is quite difficult to rectify and you should probably go back to just after saving the toolchain ( you did save it didn't you? ) and make sure you didn't skip any bits from the book.
