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 am attempting to compile a UML kernel and running into some problems. I am compiling it on a Slackware 8.1 system with the kernel upgraded to 2.4.20.
The kernel I am attempting to compile is 2.4.19 and I am using the uml-patch-2.4.19-50.bz2 UML patch.
The steps I run are listed below
1. Extract the kernel source.
2. Copy uml-patch-2.4.19-50.bz2 in to the root of the source tree
3. Run “bzcat unl-patch-2.4.19-50.bz2 | patch –p1”
4. Run “make menuconfig ARCH=um”
5. Used the default kernel options
6. Run “make dep ARCH=um” (Tried it with and without this step)
7. Run “make linux ARCH=um”
After compiling for a while it errors out with the following output.
gcc -nostdinc -I /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-slackware-linux/2.95.3/include -
