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 have a P4 1.7 GHz machine with 512 DDR RAM. I installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 AS. After installation, the display came up but it was something like a "16 color" desktop. I had to install my Display driver RPM. I typed in the command for installing the RPM package. It said that Xwindows was in use and that I had to run the scripts. It then exited. When I rebooted into text mode and typed the RPM install command, it said that the package was installed. When I tried erasing the package, it said that the package was not installed. What is to be done now? How do I go about configuring my display?
I downloaded the ethernet drivers from the intel site. It was a tar.gz file. I extracted them to a directory. As per the instructions on the Intel site, i was to type in a command called "make install". When I entered it and pressed enter, it gave an error which said "Linux Kernel not found. Stop."
How do I install my ethernet card drives? Is there another way?
