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 downloaded linux kernel tarball, uncompressed it, configured it too. After running the command "make" finally, I got the message "Kernel image is ready". I rebooted and found the image. After i select it, all i am getting is
BusyBox v1.18.4 (ubuntu 1:1.18.4-2ubuntu2) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
I am not getting any interface. It stops rite der. Kindly help. Thanks
@Anisha Kaul. I have installed yum package through apt-get though. Through apt get also i get the same message. Of course there is a difference but without distinction. I am not able to find ncurses nor make config using menuconfig. Thanks...
This thread says that running make menuconfig from the root doesn't show this error. Have you tried it through root?
Well I do think too that make menuconfig should be run through root because it generates the makefile and places it in the /usr/src/linux-3.2.1, but I don't know why it should be related to that error! Anyway, give it a shot.
BTW, what sense does it make to install yum in Ubuntu? Any special reasons for that?
