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.

hello people. I've installed Red hat 8 on vmware. the main and only reason is learn Kernel programming (and this is the OS that the course in using). the default compiler is emacs, and I've wondered if i can download and use something better, like eclipse for example.
thanks a lot!
the one you choose... its not the point of the course so they don't care.. i thought to make shared folder between VMWARE to WIN and work on eclipse (on win7) and then save it and compile the kernel in Redhat. is there somthing else you recommend?
thanks, but i already knew that. i just want a nice, friendly "text editor"/"compiler" (sorry for the misunderstanding).
for example: colors, auto-complete, easy import (files), exc.
thanks again for your help
OK, what you are looking for is an IDE or Integrated Development Environment.
Eclipse will work. EMACS is an editor that is SO programmable that it can double as an IDE.
You do not compile using an IDE. If it presents a compile button, that is what you press when you want to call the compiler against your code.
I find a true IDE much better than an editor that can double. I, however, program in Pascal more than C, C++, or C# so my IDE is somewhat dedicated and I cannot make a recommendation for your purposes.
