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 would like to use grub to boot an embedded box with linux over the net.
For that, I need to (cross)compile grub on a host (AMD Duron /kernel 2.6.18) for the embedded box (kernel 2.4.23 + patches). I am running grub's configure script like this:
The executable generated by make does not run on the embeeded box (error message: kernel to old) and seems to be build for the host:
grub/grub: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, not stripped
What I would need is
.file ./libc_ts5600/lib/libc-2.2.5.so: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, not stripped
(The libraries were delivered with the embedded box)
