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.

Trying to get Highpoint RAID controller working with Mandrake 9.1 (anyone hear if this patch has already been added to 9.2 ?)
Anyhow I got two patches from Wilfried Weissmann who wrote the hptcode which work with 2.4.21-0.25mdk kernel to give a runtime kernel that recognizes the controller. The problem I have is that I whilst I can also build a BOOT version of this if I use my BOOT kernel and the blank.img boot floppy it won't read the media from the dvdrom drive (BOOT kernel has ide CD complied in) If i use cdrom.img again replacing Vmlinuz with new kernel it gets into 2ndstage install and past the accept license and choose mouse and then complains that it can't find modules that match the kernel. and that /lib/modules.cz-2.4.21-0.25mdkhptBOOT is missing.
1) can I get the 9.1 cdrom media to install off this kernel ?
2) is is possible/needed to rebuild the first CDROM using my new kernel and modules ? in order to do 1 ?
