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.

A simple search for "kernel compile guide" gives you 600 results. There must be something useful in there. And a Google search for "linux kernel compile guide" has 2,810,000 results. Also, in LQ tutorials under programming, they have a Kernel Compilation HOWTO. See if that helps, and if you have problems, that's what the forum's for.
i'd wait a bit until you start writing to ntfs, then you don't have to worry about compiling a new kernel and messing your system up, as for the mp3's have you mounted the HDD because they won't play unless there apart of the local filesystem
the mp3 files are on ntfs partition which i have already mounted to my SUSE system, when i click on an mp3 file it opens amarok player but it does not play,same when i open the player and select a playlist it shows the list randomly on the interface one by one without playing them. And the video player also brings an error saying that it encountered an error while trying to open the file
