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.

Gives me a bunch of kernel errors, I just need to get into mozilla firefox in a GUI! I've been on task for three days slowly learning.
In exact words: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel;" ... Then it asks for permission to download a kernel. When I hit yes I get...
"No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the Nvidia ftp site; this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for your kernel." I hit OK
"Error: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel, please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option."
I have no clue what to do, can someone please point me to what I need to do?
(Think holding my hand and walking me through it, I don't know any commands for it other then startx, wget, and believe sh executes a file.)
