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.

Recently i compiled my own kernel for my laptop.I fixed and installed the grub-install /dev/hda1.Now when i want to boot the kernel when i chose it i get an error message saying:
The format is unregognized or unsupported.Any suggestions
Below is my grub.conf
when i try to boot my kernel i get
Error 13:Unsupported mpla mpla dont remember
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda2
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.-Custom)
kernel /boot/vmlinux ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
Crashed_Again is right. So just mark this line as a comment and try again.
BTW: I know that the boot process diagnostics are scrolling fast but it is your business to give us so much info as possible so next try to decode 'mpla mpla ...' :)
