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 am running Mandrake 9.2 and just upgraded my kerne to 2.6.1. My question is...where is my grub.config file? When i was using RH9 it was in /boot/grub/.config. There is something simaliar --> /boot/grub/ "menu.lst". Is this the config file that tells Grub what to boot? Do i edit the file and save it as .config? There is a /etc/lilo.conf but no etc/grub/config. Upon boot up it says "Grub 0.93" and has a small menu list to tell it what to boot, so it is booting from Grub and not Lilo right?
there was a symbolic link linking initrd.img-> initrd-2.4.22-20.mdk, but i removed it. Also is there a way to trace links to see where they go? I have no idea what the kernel.h-> /boot/kernel.h -2.4.22-10mdk means or where it goes? Do i need to link my new 2.6.1 to that? I would like to make sure everything is right so i don't have to do this all over again!
Well, I think it was a mistake to remove that symlink for your mdk kernel. I don't use mdk, so I can't say for sure, but I don't think you'll be able to boot your original kernel without it.
It looks okay to me, but then again I'm not sure how you got your initrd-2.6.1.
Did it work?
If not, have a liveCD of some sort and get ready to go rescue your machine.
Also, you should probably investigate TAB completion at the grub command line by reading the grub documentation. That will help in case you can't reboot.
I need help getting grub to boot new kernel. i have the initrd , vmlinuz, and Sytem.map linked right. I am lost on how to link kernel.h to the new 2.6.1. Before i messed with anything it was linked together... kernel-> kernel-2.4.22-10mdk.
What's the..message->message-graphic link? i dont see a kernel-2.6.1 to link kernel.h to
