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've tried a few times to compile some compiz fusion plugins, but when I do, I get an output telling me that there's no target for my "make" command, but theres a "Makefile" file in the folder that I cd'd to. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
It's in this folder /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-24-generic, I'm not sure if that's the right one though, I don't know anything about that. I ran it again to get the output, and it worked, but with a bunch of errors, I'm trying to compile the atlantis plugin, I had it before, but my file system went bad, I had a big error that the system couldn't fix itself, and I have no idea how, so I had to reinstall everything. Now, I think I'm just missing a library or something, but I can't tell, the output would be a few pages long. Have any thoughts?
so I just cd to the src directory and use those commands? And I've been trying to do a few plugins, none of them have worked. I even tried the "Elements" Script from http://www.elementsplugin.com/downlo...-recent.tar.gz I think I might be missing a dependency, some library or something, because I get a bunch of errors when I try to "make && make install".
