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 have just built a new computer to act as an FTP server. I have decided, after some research, to use vsftpd as the server software on my slackware 10.2 install.
I have downloaded the newest version of vsftpd and have unzipped the .tar.gz file i downloaded, i then cd to the folder it has created and type the make command, as instructed to do so in the install text file, and i get the following:
-bash: make: command not found
I have dabbled with linux here and there and have never had this problem before. Could anyone suggest a method to solving this problem?
ok i have done that and when i tried make it worked but then required gcc which is also not installed in my installation by the looks of things, so i found that on the same website and downloaded and installed that in the same way.
Now i have hit a slight wall, i run the make command in the folder and i get this:
gcc -c main.c -02 -Wall -W -Wshadow -idrafter dummyinc
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec 'as': No such file or directory
make: *** [main.o] Error 1
