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 have 2.4.7-2 in redflag, I also have intel82830 graphic chip which is not supported in the kernel but intel has the driver avilable which I have downloaded, now this driver requires kernel 2.4.11 so i thought patching would be the way to go i downloaded patches 2.4.8 to 2.4.12 but the very first patch find 90% of the files missing, I saw it was looking for a /linux/ directory but I have a /linux-2.4.7-2/ directory and a symbolic link /linux-2.4/ so I did
$ln -s ./linux-2.4.7-2 ./linux
and tried again, its still the same, any ideas where I am going wrong?? I placed the patch in the directory /usr/src/linux-2.4.7-2/
and did bzip2 -dc patch2.4.8.bz2 | patch -p0
and also tried the ./script/make-patch thing.
Ur suggestions will be highly appreciated.......
