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.

This is a harmless bug in the kernel. It disappears in later versions of the kernel.
"what is this unknown bridge resource and the ide bus speed defaulting to pio 33mhz, and it saying that unkown IDE controller"
Your kernel does not have support for your IDE chipset compiled into the kernel. Therefore the kernel is using generic IDE support and using the safest possible options on the IDE chipset. This appears to be working OK. If you compiled support for your IDE chipset into the kernel then your disk accesses would probably speed up.
I recommend that you download kernel 2.4.25 from www.kernel.org and compile it to get the latest support for your IDE chipset. 2.4.25 should also get rid of the 8259 bug which, in itself, is not worth doing a kernel compile for.
I am using this system for access to a specific program. The support for this program exists only for RH7.3 but it is compatible up to RH8.0 with kernel 2.4.20. Now I have downloaded and run the NVIDIA nforce2 file from the nvidia website and attempted to compile the kernel in order to include the IDE drivers, however I am now getting the idea that obviously they are not installed or they aren't part of this file. This would explain the slow performance compared to the fedora core1 that I had working last week.
thanks for the reply...nice to now that I don't have a resource conflict
