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 have a new 11.0 install and wanted to compile a kernel for my needs.
I have done this before (several times), but this problem(s) confuses me. I searched "fixdep", but I don't have a previous config file.
It looks like other problems also.
Here is the output with my two commands included:
bash-3.1# make mrproper
bash-3.1# make menuconfig
In file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1_lim.h:153,

Are there several items that didn't get installed? I know gcc is:
bash-3.1# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.4.6

These are what you need: kernel-headers, make, gcc, binutils, perl.
If you use menuconfig make sure you have the ncurses package installed. The libs included in aaa_libs are not enough for lxdialog to compile. You also need tcl for menuconfig.
Thanks for all that. I wrote those down for next time.
I am trying to keep the installation as small as I can since I only have 5G to play with for now.
I got a kernel made, but with several problems, but that is for another topic
