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.

how to point to proper sources (and where are thay by defalut-coz it seems like i cant find em) during compilation, or make a ln to it or anything..

By choosing to use a "stock" distro, you're relying upon the good folks at Red Hat to supply you with what you need. Which they do a good job of...
thx for reply but i cant execute "make" command to build rt2500 drivers or at least ndiswrapper to get my wifi working, becouse kernel sources are in some other place than program think they are...
when im trying to intall again kernel-devel pkg form rpm it says that its already installed.
