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.

Mmm I don't have the CDs right here, but I think kernels/ directory is not inside slackware/. Try browsing the directories until you find the config file. Basic *nix commands cd and ls should be enoguh.
cd - Get's into a directory, like cd /mnt/cdrom. cd .. (two dots) goes back one level.
ls - list files, i guess you understand it
With shift+pgup you'll be able to scroll the console if you need it.
Well for starters I was trying to emulate
Chapter 19 : Slackware Basics ; Building A Kernel
but I can't go in and do Make menuconfig,bzImagemodules,modules_install,etc...
No such file or directory
and even if I wanted to I still have to go in and edit lilo but for some strange reason it keeps on crashing on me every time I go in and try to edit it with anything, now thinking about it, I wonder if all this crashing would be the result of installing lilo in the MBR?
