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.

Hi. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and while trying to install the Wacom driver and kernel I get to the step after ./config and get this message when I use make.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Were there any errors after running "./config" (by which you presumably meant "./configure)? For some reason, the makefile hasn't been generated, so one naturally assumes that something went wrong during the previous step.

Best of luck
The OP already has make installed. The problem is that they don't seem to have a makefile (reread their post). Edit: I'm not even sure what updatedb has to do with make being installed or not. It's just used for (s)locate, if I'm not mistaken..
