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 recently rebuilt a linux box, using the 2.6.5 kernel. The base install was RH Fedora FC2 ( meaning, all I installed was a kernel that I later rebuilt and base utils ). Everything else has been compiled by me.
Basically, what's happening is when I log in, I get assigned a new TTY, as per normal. However, after logging out, and logging back in, my TTY increases. Here's an exmaple:
If I were to log out, then log back in, I'd be assigned pts/96. It's not really anything that bothers me, I've just never seen this behavior before. I'm wondering what causes it, and if there is an easy config to tweak to get it to go back to the way it was.
My main means of getting in to the box is via SSH, currently OpenSSH_3.6.1p2, in case that might have something to do with it. Now that I think about it, I'll go look at the config.
