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 posting these on the newbie forum because I'm new to Linux, and this was my first real experience with messing around with the kernel.
I tried to install the SBLive! open source drivers in my system this morning, but I found they have a weird behaviour. I use Red Hat 7.3. The driver's Readme file said I should recompile the kernel with a few specific options before beginning the install, and so I did, by altering the necessary configurations in the KDE Control Panel, exiting X and typing "make install" in /usr/src/Linux-2.4/ .
However, when I proceeded to compile the driver (version 0.19a), it produced an error during the install ("make install") phase - something with not being able to find /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-10custom/modules.dep . I ended up reconfiguring the kernel to support EMU10K1 on its own.
Now, when I boot up the machine, GRUB shows several entries for Linux, one of which I'm used to [Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-10)]; the two mention kernel 2.4.18-10custom.
So, after boring you all with this long tale, here is my question: Is there a way to remove references to these custom entries and have the "standard" kernel be the one I last compiled?
