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've got an issue which I believe is a LILO issue, and I wonder if anybody can help...
A few weeks ago, I updated my Red Hat 6.2 system to 7.2. The update generally went fine, except that when I now boot from my hard drive (as I normally used to) I get many errors which ~seem~ to be due to LILO not recognizing/loading the correct kernel.
If I boot from a boot floppy, everything goes fine: the correct kernel is recognized/loaded and I don't have any errors.
I had thought the problem was due to my /etc/lilo.conf perhaps not being correct/updated.
Sure enough, when I checked /etc/lilo.conf, I found the following line:
which I then changed to:
Btw: When I check my /boot directory, all of the files seem to correspond to the correct 2.4.7-10 version (e.g., initrd-2.4.7-10.img, kernel.h-2.4.7, module-info-2.4.7-10, System.map-2.4.7-10, vmlinuz-2.4.7-10, etc.)
But what surprises me is that now, even once I seem to have correctly updated my /etc/lilo.conf file, the correct kernel, etc. still does not appear to load when I boot normally from my hard drive.
Does anybody know why? (I think this is something very simple, but I'm not sure what.)
