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'm not expert in Linux, and I'm trying to install bison-1.875 in Mandrake9.0 . The thing is that I run ./configure and everything goes fine. Then I run 'make' and I get the following error:
make: Entering directory `/home/tony/bison-1.875'
Making all in config
make: Entering directory `/home/tony/bison-1.875/config'
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make: Leaving directory `/home/tony/bison-1.875/config'
Making all in po
make: Entering directory `/home/tony/bison-1.875/po'
make: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/home/tony/bison-1.875/po'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/tony/bison-1.875'
make: *** [all] Error 2
I'm not very keen on error messages, but this is kind of weird. I can't make out what it means. I guess it doesn't make some files in the 'po' directory, where they're supposed to be made... (?)
By the way, I've checked the 'po' directory, and the difference is that initially there is a Makefile.in.in, from which Makefile.in derives during configuration, while in other directories there are Makefile.in and Makefile are being created during the configuration. I can't tell that this is the problem, cause I've checked the previous bison version, and there's the same thing, so it might just be on purpose there, and I've also looked in the configure file, and it does actually use the Makefile.in.in to create the Makefile.in... don't know why, but that's how it is.
Anybody has a clue? Hint, tip, anything will just do. I'm open to all suggestions
