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 decided that tonight i would download all the updates for my RH 8 using the built in update agent. I chse to update my kernel and my kernel source. But when i try to begin the update/download i get this error:
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14 requires kernel = 2.4.18-14
Please modify your package selections and try again.
What does this mean?? Do i have to upgrade my kernel one level befor i can go any farther??
well it appears that its trying to update the kernel-ntfs before it does the kernel where kernel-ntfs needs that kernel version, so maybe try updating the kernel first and deselecting kernel-ntfs for it won't attempt to do it, and then when the kernel is done, then load up up2date again and then do the kernel-ntfs package...
my only kernel options in up2date are 'kernel' and 'kernel-source'. I tried doing just one or the other, but they both need to be selected. And even when they are the only updates i have selected i get the same error.
