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 recently installed the RedHat Fedora Core 4 and i have no previous experience with linux, so i am completely new, and i mean very very new...
i was following a guide in installing my DLINK DWL-650+ wireless PCMCIA card, and in somewhere of the guide, i was asked to install and verify the presence of a kernel-source pakage...
i typed "ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux/version.h" and i got an unsuccessful output :
ls: /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/build/include/linux/version.h No such file or directory
i followed the guide and run the "Add/Remove Application", the guide asked me to find a missing package known as gcc and also "kernel-source" or something similiar, the problem is, i can't find it anywhere in it... so i can only install the gcc compiler but not the kernel-source...
next, i browsed the linux installation cd and found some files starts with the word "kernel"(e.g kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.i686.rpm, kernel-xen0-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.i686.rpm and many more)... but when i try to install it(kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.i686.rpm), it says "the package 'kernel' has already installed"... i'm wondering whether is this package what the guide was talking about, i think not as what the guide needs is "kernel-source" and not "kernel"...
i've google "kernel-source" and been to "kernel. org" where kernel source is avaliable... i have no idea which to download and i have no idea how to deal with it or how to install it after i download it...
please, anyone, can anyone tell me how to solve this or where can i get the kernel-source from RedHat Fedora Core 4's cd or where to find the kernel source and what to do with it when i found it...
Did you get everything installed ?? I had the same issue and I installed the Kernel src as it was suggested but even after that I can not locate version.h in the directory it is supposed to be in, regarding to the site.
I am trying to install an AIRLINK AWLC3025 and am using www.houseofcraig/acx100_howto.php as a reference guide. So far it has been very easy but I get stuck with the version.h and the build.
My build ln was initially a broken ln as it went to ../../../usr/kernel/ and so on which was not present.
How do I get the version.h to show up there and how can I fix the build link.
