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 used -i for install. If you have AIM post your sn here so I can talk to you on there. Thanks. Also, I wasnt trying to install a newer version. The kernel source would not install with the curennt gc. I was trying to install one older than the one already installed. And gc needs cp or something. CPP I think.
well if you say:
gcc >= 2.96-98 is needed by kernel-source-2.4.20-18.9
then wouldn't you want to install a newer version of gcc, cause obviously by looking at that dependancy it says you need gcc greater than or equal to 2.96..
you know what d00d, you lost me now...i understand what your saying but somewheres along the lines you did something wrong cause there is no need to be going through all this....so this is my ultimatum....reboot your computer and select your old kernel from the list and then install the nvidia drivers....and keep using this kernel the hell with the other one....go to the prompt and issue the command rpm -e kernel-2.4-20 or whatever it is...
I know this is an old post, but I just installed RedHat yesteray. Also, I may end up figuring this out, but if anybody sees this post, I'd appreciate a response as I know you guys know the answer. How do I edit the /ect/inittab file from the console (while using the 3 option)?
