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.

Ok, I just compiled my second successful kernel, but with problems like before. I downloaded the kernel 2.6.11 for my Slacktop (Slack 10). After I compiled it, it starts with errors regarding the modules.conf, saying it could not use any of them. (it first adi, then I added my orinoco card modules a couple others.. still a no go) It can find the pcmcia (module? It doesn't show up in lsmod) but it can't find any cards. I can get to the start up screen, and login, but xterm (or 'any'term for that matter) don't start up... period. Other programs do, strangely. I can go to a virtual terminal (ctrl + alt + f6) though, and do stuff there, but I just don't know what to do... can someone help me? I compiled the kernel with PCI, ISA support, and many other things that I know I don't need since there not even on my laptop. If there is some way to send my config (for compiling the kernel to read off of) so you can take a look at what I configured into it, would be great, so someone can read it. I'm sure it isn't a whole lot, really. I can't think of anything else to say right now, until then this is what I got. Thanx in advance.
