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 trying to get my NVIDIA GeForce 2 graphics card working. I'm running Slackware 8, and I have changed #DEFINE CONFIG_SMP 1 to #undef CONFIG_SMP like I did every other time, and then compiled. It isn't working, and this is what I get...
that's a known problem with the slack 2.4.5 kernel. you can possibly get around it but going into that source file and changing snprintf to sprintf. Alternatively, recompiling the kernel is another option. OR using an older version of the NV drivers, as that problem *seems* to only have been a more recent affair
Well, I have no programming experience as far as C and C++ goes, but I went into the source and looked into snprintf and sprintf, I came to a good conclude on how to replace the line, and when I was done, the line above the line I worked on was exactly the same. Kind of strange, but I just deleted the snprintf line, and left the sprintf line, and it worked fine. So far I've played games and everything with no problems. Don't know, just seems a bit strange to have it. Not sure what snprintf does though, but i know I got it working.
