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 just replaced in source.list the word "stable" to "testing", then I applied a "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade". However, my kernel version is still the formelly version, but the strange thing is now I can use my Geforce4.
Do apt-cache search kernel-image and this will list the available kernels. Make a note of the details of the one you want and then do apt-get install kernel-image-the_one_you_want and it will download and install. You will be taken through the hardware support modules that you saw when you first installed. At the end it will want to either update grub or install lilo. Reboot into your new kernel. If you have a problem with the kernel booting you can reboot with your original cd.
I am compiling my first kernel (the 2.6.8 kernel verion source)

Hi, I ran across a similar issue when recompiling a kernel, and too be honest I gave up recompiling under X, I now open up a console and hit: make menuconfig. I know it is not a proper solution to your issues but at least it should allow you to compile. and also make sure you have the proper packages installed for compiling a kernel, which ones? Do a search on google, or otherwise have a look at the very verbose guide into compiling a kernel the debian way (or so...) Goodluck!
