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'm trying to get my sound working on slackware, but when I do make modules_install, it errors during some pcmcia stuff, I tryed to just disable all pcmcia options in my kernel since I don't need them, but the xconfig won't let me touch any of them. is there anyway I can disable them all?
Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18/pcmcia/parport_cs.o.gz
parport_cs.o.gz seems to be the problem, I didn't make mrproper and took out all pcmcia support, but this still pops up....anyone know where this is in the kernel config?
I think you need to delete the module /lib/modules/2.4.18/pcmcia/parport_cs.o.gz. If all the references are removed from the running kernel, but something is attempting to load the module or build the dependency file (like depmod -a in rc.modules) then the prior existing module will result in unresolved symbols. The make modules_install could be attempting to run depmod as well causing the error.
I would. You could check the date/time stamps on the files first if you like. I do not believe they will match your kernel build time for the System.map that is in reference. The files would be remants from the last build. Personally, I am surprised you are even seeing this problem. I would of thought the process would of deleted them.
Is your system date set correctly? I have seen wierd happenings on systems where a kernel is built at one time, and then the clock is changed back in time prior to the kernel build, then a rebuild is attempted. All the files from the prior build will appear newer than the current build. That will mess up most any make system.
When I migrate from a stock kernel after an install to a custom kernel, I trash the entire tree from the kernel version down. Unless I desire to keep it for a legacy reference, in that case I rename it. The modules_install will create the tree if needed for modules when a module enabled kernel is built and then install just the modules that were built.
