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.

Thanks for reply. I didn't skip the Host System Requirements section, but I also didn't check if my Ubuntu system met the requirements. My bad, and lucky for me I found a solution quicker than ahbiklall it would seem As I said in my post to ahbiklall, I am extremely new to the world of Linux and am quite proud of myself just for getting to start of chapter 5.8 so far. It's been slow, but I'm getting more and more confident.
Now if I could only figure out how to keep the Asus PCE-N13 Wifi PCI-E card on permanently without having to restart the computer to turn it back on, I would be happy
More suggestions to get chapter 5.7 to work on Ubuntu 11.04:
In a previous post in this thread, I mentioned that installing 'gawk' got 'make' and 'make install' to do something. They both appeared to be working (they ran for a little while), but I still ended up with errors (which I mentioned earlier) when they finished. I wasn't happy with that so I did a little more checking and found this post to be most useful:
I think it was the 'chown' and 'chgrp' tips that fixed my problem. When I ran 'make' and 'make install', they both took a very long time to process, and I didn't see any errors when they finished. I assume they worked.
The symlink tip was already covered by earlier instructions in the LFS 6.8 book if I'm not mistaken, so for this thread, I don't think that's the important part.
Of course, when I executed the long SPECS command from chapter 5.8, I got 'sed' errors, so now I'm off to look into that
Good night all.
