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've just installed slackware 9.1 for the first time and i am having a major problem.
when i try to do a modprobe i get a message that the file /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/modules.dep can't be loaded.
This is normal because the directory 2.4.22-10mdk doesn't exist.
the 2.4.22-10mdk kernel is a mandrake kernel, and i have no idea why slackware thinks that i am using that kernel.
I do have a dir /lib/modules/2.4.22 wich contains all the modules and drivers but when i copy those files to /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk and try modprobe i get an error that those modules are for use with the 2.4.22 kernel.
When I installed Slackware I installed the bare.i kernel and I have no idea where the 2.4.22-10mdk comes from (i do have mandrake 9.2 installed on another partition)
even when I do a uname -r it tells me that i am using kernel 2.4.22-10mdk
I also have another problem, being that I can't mount ext3 partiotions, slackware tells me that it is not supported by the kernel while slackware itself is installed on an ext3 partition.
Please help me cause I really want to get away from Mandrake since it's so buggy.
