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 am trying to complie a 2.4.26 kernel for click modular router kernel mode
I did patch -p1 < ~/projects/shaper/click/click/etc/debian-2.4.26-patch , and there is no error.
then I cp /boot/config-2.4.26-1-386 .config (a working copy from my debian sarge)
and disabled the modules which conflict with click.
when I reboot and choose Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.26-click
I got modprob: can't open dependencis file /lib/modules/2.4.26-click/modules.dep (no such file or directory)
pivot_root: No such file or directory
/sbin/init :431: can not open dev/console: nosuch file
kernel panic :attempt to kill init
and system hangs. But /lib/modules/2.4.26-click/modules.dep exists.
So I searched internet and did this make-kpkg kernel_image @ /usr/src/linux
then wajig install kernel-image-2.4.26-click_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
when I reboot with Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.26-click
VFS: Can not open root device "hda6" or 03:06
please append a correct "root=" boot option
kernel panic : VFS unable to mount root fs on 03:06
and system hangs
you must install nvidia once on one kernel, then boot the other kernel and then install again, BUT... you must be sure to use the -K option (or maybe -k) this will install the kernel driver only, without going over the openGL libraries fom the previouse install.
