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.

when i do 'make bzImage' on 2.6.0, i get a 'vmlinux', which is 4.7mb-seems large to me, and lilo complains that it is too big. i tried to keep the built-ins to a minimum, with most built as modules. i also get a slew of unresolved symbol warnings under 'make modules'. thanks for any thoughts. (gcc322 in slack 9.0).

Maybe new users should have to read the

Don't think that will happen but I do at times bug Jeremy to make it so when they sign up for the first time, they have to check off in check boxes each rule before they can click "Accept" to continue registering which I think would make them more aware of the rules since some seem to disregard them. Oh well, didn't mean to get this off topic.
thanks, tinkster, that's what i needed to know. it's been awhile since i last did this and stuff doesn't seem in the same place(or i've just forgotten). i originally thought the modules business was part of a general screwup of mine, but now i believe that is a separate issue from my not locating bzImage(1.6mb, it turns out) and that i require a module-init-tools pkg
for this kernel. so, thanks again.
