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.

we are a group of students working on a clusturing project(making a linux virtual server).We had downloaded new kernel 2.4.21 (linux-2.4.21.tar.bz2) on a machine installed earlier with kernel 2.4.20-8.Then we used following commands as root:-
tar -jxvf linux-2.4.21.tar.bz2,
then cd linux-2.4.21 and issed following commands :-
make mrproper,make menuconfig,make dep,make bzImage modules,
these are working fine.But make install modules_install was giving error that there is no directory named /lib/modules/2.4.21,Then we created. the directory 2.4.21 manually by using the command mkdir.Then we tried the same command make install modules_install.it had executed properly without error now.Has we did the right thing ,sir.?
Then the commands :-
cp -p arch/i386/boot bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.21 ,
cp -p System.map /boot/System.map-2.4.21,
cp -p .config /boot/config-2.4.21,
Then cd /boot and then command:-
Then we varified /etc/grub.conf to check the new kernel entry .Then rebooted,But the system keeps on rebooting with the new kernel as the BIOS screen comes.When we boot from old kernel it is booting properly.What could be the problem ,sir?
