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'm running FC5 on kernel 22.214.171.124. I downloaded this kernel from kernel.org,,and was able to compile it and its running quite well.
Now, I downloaded the 2.6.17 source and when I compiled,, the
" make modules" and "make modules_install" is not even taking much time which previously had taken some minutes to finish. After installing the kernel ,when I tried to boot,its showing " kernel panic"
Well, I prefer nearly-monolithic kernels. By the way, are all the drivers needed to mount / compiled in kernel, not as modules? (whatever Red Hat thinks, it reduces problems) What exactly panic do you get?
yes, be more specific about the error you get, if it's before the mounting of the root filesystem, then you don't have the modules for your IDE/SATA compiled. That's all I can do for now. maybe if you post more info, but I still haven't managed to compile one with the "libata" module existing (for SATA harddisks only).
