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 started out with around 250 MB, I got the 2.6 test5 kernel. I untared it in /usr/src it gave me some error about the .bz2 being corrupt (I ran some program it reccomended to fix it and it created a million little .bz2 files which I want to get rid of, I could not do rm -rf /usr/src and I not want to go through getting rid of a million little .bz2 files with rm filename.bz2, it would take forever), it uncompressed some of the files into the linux-2.6.0-test5 directory, I ran Kdiskfree and it now says I have 10 MB left so I go into konqueror and go to /usr/src (in terminal I type su, then konqueror) and I see the directory linux-2.6.0test5 so I delete it and I see the .bz2 file's and I delete them, but I leave my current kernel intact. I check to see how much space I now have and it's still 10 MB! I go into the command line and check whats in /usr/src and the files really are not there. Where do you think the files went? please help I am a desperate noob!
