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 just compiled my kernel and everything went fine, at least i can recompile. Simple question :
- Why does it complain at the end of the loading process that there is no
/lib/modules/2.6.6 modules.dep file or directory ? Actualy there isn't any just 2.4.22 ,what did i do wrong ? maybe a link would solve it ? what?
The 2.6.x series of kernels don't create this folder, you have to do it yourself,
once done however, no more errors. The folder should allways go in /lib/modules and should be called 2.6.6 or whatever kernel your running.
I assume it's because most people on 2.6 don't use modules anymore, i for example just compile everything i want in, and use it as is, no need for modules really.
forgot to say that i just followed shilo "this is how i did it all" wise steps (hopefully they`ll make a song out of it :-) in order to compile the kernel.
BTW if i want to change(compile) something again, i can just cd /usr/src/linuxxxxx and do make gconfig and change whatever i want and then, make , make modules , make modules install and it "will" change this kernel's configuration, right? sorryfor being so cautious and ignorant but i guess i wont hurt
BTW I am starting to become a true gnome fan. I noticed i runs much faster than before and it is more simple now, the only thing they've missed was to put kde on the menu like in slackware previous release
