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.

Distribution: Dual booting Mandrake 10 and SUSE 9.1
Redhat 9 update kernel?
I installed Redhat9 yesterday and did the update today, while doing this it said something about not updating kernel. I think a default is set not to update the kernel and wondered if this is because its not something you should should do if like me your new to linux or should i update it anyway?
Pretty new to Linux myself - I just update them anyway - I think if the second number is an odd number in the Kernel it's a development release and if it's even then it's a stable one - that's about I all I know and I maybe wrong.
If you're using GRUB as a bootloader it'll automactically add it to the start-up menu so you can decide to boot to it or back to the older version if you have problems.
I guess it's like any update of software - there's always the potential it could cause problems - but I've never had any so I just update whenever up2date announces them.
Distribution: Emacs and linux is its device driver(Slackware,redhat)
if you are using redhat network all releases are stable Looking_Lost is right for the releases of kernel.org or other sites in redhat releases the same kernel 2.4.20 in redhat 9 diffrent builts last one is 9 2.4.20-9
if you have any driver installed by third party vendor when u update the kernel you have to install thm again. if not you can update it safely.
