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 trying to get libinklevel working. The instructions were as followed.
tar xzf libinklevel-0.6.4.tar.gz
I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing in vi Makefile but I run that, get out of it, then run make and make install. Make gives me the following error
gcc -Wall -O2 -fPIC -DPIC -I. -c -o linux.o linux.c
linux.c:11:22: ieee1284.h: No such file or directory
linux.c: In function `get_device_id':
linux.c:29: error: storage size of 'parports' isn't known
linux.c:52: warning: implicit declaration of function `ieee1284_find_ports'
linux.c:52: error: `E1284_OK' undeclared (first use in this function)
linux.c:52: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
linux.c:52: error: for each function it appears in.)
linux.c:54: warning: implicit declaration of function `ieee1284_get_deviceid'
linux.c:55: error: `F1284_FRESH' undeclared (first use in this function)
linux.c:29: warning: unused variable `parports'
make: *** [linux.o] Error 1
and make install gives me the same error. CAN SOMEONE HELP PLEASE. I've had this working before and now I'm getting frustrated (XP PRO crashed my system and I had to format)
