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.

OK, I'm trying to upgrade my kernel on Linux for Windows system.
I have downloaded, untarred, and unzipped the new source.
According to the doc I've found on the net, my next step is to "Configure the Kernel". It says to enter the command 'make config' When I do that, it says "make command/file not found" (or something like that).
The doc says the script requires bash, so verify that bash is /bin/bash, /bin/sh or $BASH
make sure ure in the directoy u unpacked in before issuing configure or make commands. *if ure in X, a "make xconfig" will give u a config GUI to work with.
u can verify having bash by issuing
"ls /bin/bash" or "find / -name bash -print".
I was just wondering how you untarred and unzipped without using the BASH shell? If you did it in a 'dos' like window then you will be using it already (although there are different shells, BASH is the most common).
I have come to the conclusion that I would not be able to do anything "worthwhile" with my current version of Linux.
The version I had is called "Linux for Windows" by Mandrake or LNX4WIN. It was a partionless install and I think it is basically just a demo.
I didn't have the "make command" installed in that version.
I found out that I had to download it. But before that, I found several other "issues" with this distro so I decided to ditch it and picked up a standard version of RH 7.1
