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.

The kernel sources *should* be on your install CDs, although I don't know if it was installed by default. Look through your packages (or check the package manager - I'm not too familiar with MDK, sorry) for something along the lines of 'kernel-source[some extra stuff here].rpm.
ya, I used to have Mandrake 10.0, this is what I did to get the sources (if there not already there)
# urpmi kernel-sources
If you want to see if you have first, before you needlessly install a kernel, go to /usr/src/ in a file manager, or whatever, and see if you see linux-2.6.something. If ther is then you have the kernel sources installed already.
