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.

this is my second thread on these boards. Anyway, I'm having trouble with my configuration to allow me to get to my serial ports, I have a relatively cheap board (an ECS K7VTA3) so I've had a fair share of problems with it already (sound, and random lockups (fixed those)). I know that the southbridge chip is a VIA 82Cxxx and works just fine under kernel 2.4.20. But the serial port doesn't work under 2.6.0. Here's a section of the .config file that I think is the culprit
# Input device support
# Userland interfaces
# CONFIG_INPUT_TSDEV is not set
# Input I/O drivers
# CONFIG_GAMEPORT is not set
# CONFIG_SERIO_CT82C710 is not set
