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.

"loading kernel..." (or "loading linux..." i think)
and then my computer just restarts. I was hoping someone could tell me what ive done wrong; like am i missing any files from my /boot directory. I copied the "vmlinux" file (created in /usr/src/linux, and the "bzImage" file (created in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot) into my /boot directory, just like the walkthrough @
