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 am reading the book REd hat 7 unleashed and the note on the 841 pages says me that all distros have modified the original linux kernel accordings to them so if we modify the kernel and copile, we might not get some features working (which featuress? and why ?)
is there any way that i modify linux kernel and then i can use it as a separate os?
thanks a lot but I can't resolve the following error :
root@aarsh-desktop:/usr/src/linux-2.6.34# make menuconfig
scripts/kconfig/conf.c: In function ‘conf_askvalue’:
scripts/kconfig/conf.c:105: warning: ignoring return value of ‘fgets’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result
scripts/kconfig/conf.c: In function ‘conf_choice’:
scripts/kconfig/conf.c:307: warning: ignoring return value of ‘fgets’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result
*** Unable to find the ncurses libraries or the
*** required header files.
*** 'make menuconfig' requires the ncurses libraries.
*** Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.
make: *** [scripts/kconfig/dochecklxdialog] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
All is going now smooth. I am about to replace the kernel.
But, I 've to press y/n/m for about 200-250 choices it asking me on the command prompt. can I avoid it or speed it up , If I want to keep just defaults ???
