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.

recently upgraded to 2.6.2 kernel. managed to get things working *fairly* well. Only problem is a few things i need to clean up in my boot logs, and in general, so hopefully someone can help out.
okay, first things first. my logs are spammy with this mess:
Feb 19 08:33:07 mother modprobe: FATAL: Module char_major_5_2 not found.
Feb 19 08:33:07 mother modprobe: FATAL: Module char_major_5 not found.
these messages are spamming up my logs, and i cant seem to track down the culprit.
I checked my modprobe.conf file, and found that char-major-4 and char-major-5 alias to serial:
alias char-major-4 serial
alias char-major-5 serial
So i dont really have any serial devices, and thought i would try commenting these lines out of the modprobe.conf file. no luck, still have the problem.
the thing is, that i notice these messages get spammed into my logs every time i open a new terminal.
could someone point me in a general (or specific would be even better) direction to track down what this is, and why its happening?
