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.

What's it tryin to tell me? I patched the kernel with the bootsplash patch before compiling, and only added a coulpe options in make menuconfig, nothing that involves the init stuff... anyone got any ideas how to fix this? Im using grub, if that matters...
ALSO.. is redhat 9 kernel 2.6 ready ? if not you will need to update your module-init-tools to the latest version (which it will have told you to do after comiling / installing your kernel modules (never ignore warning messages !)
well knoppix shows that most things in the boot folder are both for the old kernel and 2.6.1, but still neither will boot. im gonna try the system rescue from the install disks, but if that fails, is there no option but to reinstall then retry the new kernel?
i got some warnin messages when compiling, most was something was defined but not used and something about something being deprecated, but i cant remember what it was.
ok, ive reinstalled rh9, and recompiled the 2.6.1 kernel twice. i now get iptables to fail and usb to fail, even though i compiled UHCI (thats what 2.4 used) into the kernel... I also got a bunch of error during the module make install, mainly check_region being deprecated, something to worry about? how do i fix it?
PS i now have both 2.4 and 2.6 in grub, both boot, albeit 2.6 with troubles, thanx for the tip qwijibow!
