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.

make is a program that falls the rules of a file to comile, link, and install your programs, lucky gor you make is not needed to install make(at elast that what it claims ), just go to www.gnu.org and search for make, dl it, untar it, and read the readme/install files tehn install like it says to and u got make
it should be part of every distro -- tho its not required sence its only used when compiles multiple files as one
i dono if makderake has autoplay suport, but jsut put the rquired cd in and open it like you normaly would i think is how they do it , or is there some special program to do this to? --lol i use a very spimlifieyed verson of linux so all i knwo how to do is dl the source, untar, ./configure --prefix=/, make, make check, make install
Tried getting make off of my distro CD's. After inserting CD's and mounting I viewed contents of Commercial Application CD and Supplementatry Application CD and couldnt find "make". So I'll download from the site given earlier.
You're welcome. Remember those CDs have a LOT of packages on them (well, 9.1 did, and so did my Debian disks, Debian had around 9 CDs I think..) so if you need something, they're the easiest way to go until you want to experiment with patches etc.
