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.

Well I followed DrOzz's Newb guide on how to compile a kernel and everthing has gone smoothly up to creating the initrd file.When I use the mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.0 2.6.0 I get this error "No module sym53c8xx2 found for kernel 2.6.0".I've searched this board and google for a solution and I can't seem to find a solution.I'm using RedHat9 with the linux-2.4.20-8 currently,my boot loader is grub,and here is my hardware list.If Ive left out any important info please let me know.

I must just be missing some thing I followed the articles listed but I gues I missed a step?Everything went smoothly untill it couldnt find sym53c8xx_2 under 2.6.0/drivers/scsi when I used the make command.I found that it was named sym53c8xx2 so I just renamed it sym53c8xx_2 and ran make again it ran fine.When I ran make install this is the error I get and its basicly the same error I was getting before "Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.0/arch/i386/boot/install.sh 2.6.0 arch/i386/boot/bzImage System.map ""
No module sym53c8xx_2 found for kernel 2.6.0
make: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2"
