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 had to to add SIP support to my kernel 2.6.13-15 on my SUSE 10 box for my VOIP phone.I have attempted to add this new kernel to grub loader. When I try and boot with this new kernel I get these errrors:
13 : Invalid or unsupported executable format
file not found
here is my /boot/grub/menu.lst

Why is it that they use a symbolic link to the kernel?
I have made a symbolic link to the new sip kernel but that makes no difference! I have changed the paths and etc.....
What am I doing wrong? Help!

nothing in the computer world can make us look id1ots.. it's just the programer's fault(it's always and we gotta live with)
