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.

Oddly, I've solved every other problem I've encoutered when upgrading from my 2.4.23 to 2.6 (that is, sound works perfectly now, so does my internet [nforce2]). But, alas, I'm unable to solve this issue.
I'm using a Logitech Optical Wheel (4 button) Mouse. It's part of the Elite MX Duo (keyboard) I got. It works just fine (the wheel, that is) in 2.4.23 using the 'auto' setting in XF86Config. I've tried other settings, Mouseman, Microsoft. Those just result in a crazy mouse cursor (uncontrollable). So I'm using auto right now w/o wheel support.
Any help with this is appreciated. Thanks.
One other "problem" I have (though it's not really limited to 2.6) is that I wanted to create a monolithic kernel, except I wish to have scsi emulation for my cd-rom. So instead of having this as a module, I simply included it into the kernel. It seems this isn't enough as when I attempt to mount the drive, I receive block device errors. When I compile ide-scsi as a module and then modprobe it, followed by a mount, the drive mounts and I can access the data on the cdrom.
So, how does one include the scsi emulation of the cdrom into the kernel *and* still be able to mount the drive? Is there something I need to pass to the kernel through the grub command line?
