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.

ok, this is pissing me off. i've recompiled my kernel numerous times but all of the sudden i keep running into a friggin wall!
with the 2.4.18 kernel i get mouse errors saying that x cannot open /dev/input/mice and that it doesn't exist. it works on the install when i choose the usb.i kernel but when i recompile to get sound, even recompile and just change sound to yes and enable my soundcard, i get that error. i did do the necessary xf86config file modifications (protical IMPS/2) (device /dev/input/mice).
with 2.4.20 i get the invalid compressed format (error=1) or kernel panic, tried to kill init.
well i tried to do that but when i did modprobe soundcore it said no such module yadda yadda and plus my soundcard uses the chipset that is 3rd down from the top in the sound menue, ill give ya the name later... it starts with a c.... and im almost positive that it is by default set to off and not module.
