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.

When I use my own kernel ( means that I configure and compile kernel my self ), I alwasy get bad messages. None of them dangerous. However, I am just unhappy read those message every time I boot into my machine. In my latest kernel, 2.6.2 I got these messages:
Mounting USB filesystem:
fgrep: /proc/bus/usb/drivers: No such file or directory
Well, do you have a USB keyboard and mouse? If not then remove the support for them from the kernel. If you do, you could try building them as modules.
In fact since lots seemed to fail on USB. What USB devices do you have?
I got USB to PS/2 mouse and USB printer. What I don't understand is with default kernel, I got message like this:
Initializing USB HID interface [OK]
Initializing USB keyboard [OK]
Initializing USB mouse [OK]
So, I enabled USB support for mouse and keyboard in my new kernel. And I got the annoying messages. It keeps looking for mousedev and keybdev module and say " I can't find it!!!"
But that's not important anymore because my Fedora got trouble. Imagine the situation: You were browsing for sometimes. And for some reasons you want to boot into another kernel. Suddenly the Linux system didnt recognize my ethernet card then kudzu asked "do you want to remove the configuration for the ethernet card D-link blablabla???". I asked yes. Then I can not connect to internet. I tried all kernel I have in Fedora. All of them didnt recognize my ethernet card anymore. I couldn't live without internet. I checked in Windows and Knoppix 3.3. I could connect to internet with them.
I am in holiday now. So I think I better spend my time to migrate my desktop into Debian testing or unstable than track the problem in Fedora that can spend many hours!!!!!! It is tragedy........
