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 Slack 9 install. It says that the cpu is set at a 486 in and I want to recompile (or something) the kernel for an athalon. I tried to recompile the kernel from source about 20 times and got error after error. I had to restore from my backup quite a few times, to get X working. Is there a way to set the kernel cpu settings to an athalon. When compile a program from source it seems like it takes forever compared to when I had Slack 8.1 installed.
What specific errors did u get? I've recompiled my kernel countless times and had little problems... In fact most of my problems was due to not reading the options properly.
You should find a config-ide-kernel.version file in /boot. You can use that file as a basis for your recompile by copying it to your kernel source dir (usually /usr/src/linux) after running make mrproper.
See if there is a hidden .config file in the /boot directory.
If there is you can load the .config configuration when running
make xconfig. This will contain the options you started with. Using it as a starting point change the architecture for the CPU and give that a try.
If there is a /boot directory on the install cd, try looking there for a config or .config file.
