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.

well you're stuffed really, you just deleted your kernel (no wonder lilo ain't working) it should be possible to use a rescue disk to reinstall it, but you'll be stabbing in the dark so so much, it's not likely to be worth the hassle, reinstall
Originally posted by awlad thanks ..but is it apossible to copy the kernel in the floppy to the hard drive? and will it work the same?
also wondering if and how is it possible to have a partition of 10MB just to boot up the lilo from there.
1. I think so, if you make the /boot folder/partition as in your origional configuration.
2. If you are asking about a separate /boot partition, that might be a little tight. I recommend between 20 to 100 mb for a separate /boot partition, depending on how many kernels you want to play around with.
Originally posted by fancypiper With that drive, I suggest either 2 or 3 partitions. If you choose ext 2 (good) or ext3 (better) filesystems, go with 2 partitions, otherwise make a /boot partition as I suggested before.
Make all of them primary partitions.
swap - 128 mb
/boot (if needed) - 40 mb
/ - the rest of the space
You may want to add a drive later for your /home partition as it makes changing your mind and saving stuff easier.
