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 recently compiled and installed Xorg. This morning when I ran the configuration program I recieved a error stating that libxkbui.so.1 could not be found. If anyone could hep me resolve this problem it would be great.
well, don't exactly know what happened, but i ran ldconfig again and it worked. Problem now is that it can't access /usr/lib/X11/xkb/rules, and when i look at the /usr/lib/X11 dir, it has xkb in red. Don't know exactly what that means.
Try 'ls -l /usr/lib/X11/xkb'. It probably is a symbolic link to a non-existent destination.
If yes, either the destination was (re)moved or the link points to the wrong place.
Anyway you should remove this link before you install Xorg again.
Also, the other day I was trying to install the ATI binary drivers. I had to build the module manualy, and when i tried, the shell command resulted in an error stating that I wasn't running a login shell. I did su -l, even though i am still using a terminal ui, and it again reported the same error. Anyone know why?
Not sure, but have you added the startup scripts from the beginning of the BLFS book? Maybe the ATI installation is looking for some environment variable to determine if its a login shell or not, and if its not there, it assumes its not a login shell. Just a guess though.
The scripts are pretty helpful in setting up paths and environment variables that might be needed by some programs to work correctly, so you should probably add them if you havent....
