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.

well, when i do those steps, and i type make, it tells me that i shoulc copy the correct .config file into my linux-2.4 directory. and it tells me where to find it. the problem is there are about 15 .config files in there. which one do i copy?
[root@bluedoom emu10k1]# make
make: Entering directory `/root/emu10k1/scripts'
cc -I/usr/src/linux-2.4/include get_version.c -o get_version
make -f /root/emu10k1/scripts/Makefile.get_options -C /usr/src/linux-2.4 get_version_target
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3'
** /usr/src/linux-2.4/.config is missing
** if this is a custom kernel then you need to run make config in /usr/src/linux-2.4.
** if this is a distribution kernel then you need to copy the correct .config file to /usr/src/linux-2.4.
** for RedHat kernels the .config file is one of the /usr/src/linux-2.4/configs/*.config
make: *** [get_version_target] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3'
make: *** [get_options] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/root/emu10k1/scripts'
make: *** [opts] Error 2
In Redhat, they have a lot of .config files in /usr/src/linux/configs. You'll have to find the one that matches your processor and copy that to the /usr/src/linux. EX: "cp /usr/src/linux/configs/******.config /usr/src/linux/.config That worked for me in 7.3. After that, you should be able to compile no problem.
okay, i solved that problem, i get no errors throughout the entire install process, until i check it. i get this:
[root@bluedoom sbin]# modprobe emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
