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 am totally new to linux and i leraning it in my class. On the finall project i got to do the upgrade kernel from 2.6.5-something for everything higher. I found the higest kerenl right now is 2.6.9 also i foun information how to do it on the "digitalhermit.com/linux/Kernel-Build-HOWTO.html by Kwan Lowe" .
I did everything what was writen there step by step and everything seems went ok. However when i choose from Grub my new kernel i got this message on the terminal
Booting Fedora Core (2.6.9)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.9 ro root=LABLE=/1 rhgb quiet
Error 15: File not found
I want to add that i use Fedora Core 2
Thx for replay
this is my grub :
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda6
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
title Fedora Core (2.6.9)
kernel /boot/bzImage ro root=LABLE=/1 rhgb quiet
and this is my /boot:
. grub System.map-2.6.5-1.358
.. initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img System.map-2.6.9
bzImage-2.6.9 initrd-2.6.9.img vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358
config-2.6.5-1.358 lost+found vmlinuz-2.6.9
thx again for everything and i will try this Yum and Apt
i just check this webste however it looks for me that they do automatic update and my teacher want everything done by me no automatic updates!! i think it is if i am wrong please give me explanation how to use it thx
The boot loader looks in the /boot directory for the kernel image, so when you specify /boot/bzImage it's looking for the dir boot inside of /boot. I could be wrong but that's my guess.
Iam sorry for all your trouble but it works just fine and iam so excited becouse i did something new i am very very apprciate for what you done for me tkank tou for all your time it took you to replay me thx again i hope i will remember how i did it becouse i have to show my teacher in class how i done it thx again you do not now how happy i am
