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.

with UBUNTU 2.6.17-10 on AMD 64 Athlon, I try to compile kernel 18.104.22.168 with KGDB(kgdb v for 2.6.16 base kernel) patched, but at boot time kernel is crashing giving the above message.
FYI i am pasting the log message:

I tried to resolve this issue by googling and all possible ways but i am leading to the same point.
1, I did make mrproper.
2, i copied doing config file of 2.6.17-10 to linux-22.214.171.124
3, In make menuconfig
>included ext3fs(not modular) into the kernel.
>KGDB related stuff according to the documentation
>Filesystem : pseudo fs support
4, make bzImage
5, make modules
6, make modules_install
7, mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-126.96.36.199 /lib/modules/188.8.131.52
9, copied bzImage,system.map and initrd.img-184.108.40.206 to /boot of target m/c.
8, altered grub/menu.lst of target m/c according to that.
title kgdb, kernel 220.127.116.11
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168 ro root=/dev/hda2 kgdbwait
and even i tried editing /etc/fstab of target to include devpts.
