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 have installed a debian from woody and it's working fine with kernel-2.4, but I need to tune it and then I want to upgrade to the kernel-2.6.
I've tried this in two ways and either of them was right.
By one hand, I've tried the simpliest way, that's is installing the kernel-image-2.6.10-1-686 and the corresponding dependencies (I think), but there are a lot of dispositives as the pcmcia network interface that doesn't work although I tried to install the correct module with modconf. Maybe I can't find since tulip_cb that is the one works on 2.4 it isn't in the list... ?¿
Then I tried to compile my own kernel, it's no my first time, but I experience problems whith modules.
Now in my system are the corresponding modules configuration files at /etc and in /lib/modules i have three directories:
When I start with my compiled kernel some modules are missing.
Is that for an error building my kernel? then, what i have to pay attention?
I have to do anything more to update the module tree ? Where or what is the file where the system knows witch directory have to search the modules ?
Please if you need any configuration files of my system tell me what and i will post on my server.
You might not have selected the modules during the kernel configuration step. See the /lib/modules directory for your kernel. In the source check Makefile; the version information in it is used to build the /lib/modules/2.6.x or whatever. Also it may be problem with udev and hotplug. lsmod listing may help.
i have done that a lot of temes and i recommentd that u get a prebuilt kernel .deb package
install that,if it works fine then ,load that config file in to ur kernel source and start making chages to that
also maybe the 2.4 system is looking for some modules which are there with different names
