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.

1. Thank you for the suggestion. I too wondered if I might not have messed up the module-init-tools installation. So I did a complete reinstall of Slack 2.6.13. I then installed the 2.6.15 kernel and ran: generate-modprobe.conf. The problem persists:
modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
Warning: not translating path[toplevel]=/lib/modules/2.6
2. As a test I compiled everything into the kernel with no module loading and the system runs very nicely. So I guess that I do not really need loadable modules right now, But then as another test I tried to install a module with modprobe then I ran lsmod and it worked just fine.
3. make modules_install clearly installed the modules. They show up in modprobe -l. Some of those modules show up in /etc/modprobe.conf some don't. Only those modules in the modprobe -l listing can be installed. Those others found in /etc/modprobe.conf cannot be installed.
4. For now I give up. The system seems to work. I do not know why it works, but it does. If anyone has any suggestions as to references that might help me figure this out I would appreciate them. In the meantime I am moving on to easier problems like RAID and SAMBA.
