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.

yes I have the new Gcc,but as i said,it needed too many things installed first.So I thought it might be better to get some older one.Which I found on cd MDK9.1
3.2.2. is not that old and installation went ok.
Well,looks like for one thing I need another 10.Getting tired.
I apologize for wasting time. On looking in the directory of chrootkit 0.40, I see that it is one of those rare programs that doesn't need to be installed. Execute the shell script 'chkrootkit' in the chkrootkit directory. In 0.40, at least, that's all it takes. Just in case, it's:
