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 just did a gentooinstall with gcc 3.2.
First of all it took forever to compile compared to 2.95 - about double.
Then a lot of apps don't work ok.I only checked mozilla and galeon so far but it's definitely a no-go.
What I try to find out now is whether the trouble is gcc 3.2 or the flags I use to compile apps.
I got a duron processor and use -march=athlon.
From what I gathered that should be ok.With gcc 2.95 i used i686.
Now I could try either the i686 flag with gcc 3.2 or use gcc 2.95 with i686 but since i compiled gcc 3.2 with the athlon flag the compiler might be broken if this flag doesn't work with my processor!?
Am I right here or should the compiler be ok as long as I don't get any errors?
If anybody else shoulg stumble about the same thing:
The compilerflag for duron is supposed to be athlon-tbird - works for me
For newer durons (more than 1,1ghz) it's athlon-mx - couldn't check on that one.
