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.

hi after 3 days of bloody work, my new kernel still didn't work!!!
I need to upgrade the kernel to be 2.6.1 and I did the following to my RH 9 with 2.4.20-8 kernel.
make, make bzImage, make modules, make modules_install all went fine.
I mkinitrd initrd-2.6.1.img 2.6.1
I copied the initrd-2.6.1.img to /boot/
then I copied the arch/i386/boot/bzImage to /boot/bzImage-2.6.1
and I copied System.map to /boot/System.map-2.6.1
then removed System.map and created a new one ln -s System.map-2.6.1 System.map
at last I edited the grub.conf to be
title rehhat 2.6.1
root (hd0, 1)
kernel /bzImage-2.6.1 ro root=LABEL=/
title rehhat 2.4.20-8
root (hd0, 1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/
on reboot i selected the 2.6.1 kernel and it failed, didn't show me any error message, it went straight into another reboot, the old kernel boots up fine.
I changed the root(hd0 ,1) to be (hd0, 2) and it says file not found, Kernel /bzImage-2.6.1
can anyone help me solve this problem? there must be someone has done it, and I have been scratching my head for 3 days.
btw, what about the modules_info-2.4.20-8 file in the /boot? should there be a new modules_info-2.6.1 there?
thats probly cuse you didetn configure teh kernel right, you ahve to tell it what prosessor you use, and what bord to use (closest one), otherwise it wont work, *like writing a blue print without any pictures in chinese, and asking a americian to build whatever the prints said to build (and the americain cant read anyhtign but english/american english)*
