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'm running Mandrake 8.2 and I upgraded to the 2.4.19 kernel. The kernel boots and runs well but there's a couple probs. First off when I boot I get two error messages;
Mounting local filesystems failed
Mounting other file systems failed.
I'm currently able to acces one of my cdrom drives but the cd rw that's suppose to be using scsi emulation is working. In fact it's not even listed in /dev. Besides that I've noticed no other probs although it's only been a couple hours.
Looks like you enabled devfs. I have read some things on this recently, it's semi-new. It creates the /dev devices as they are made/required/necessary/requested, instead of the old way of having every known option in the /dev directory to begin with. There are obvious advantages to this if it works. However I am not that good to be able to fix your particular situation on this. I would say go back and remove that option until you can become more familiar with devfs and then go ahead and give it a try then.
