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 trying to compile a kernel and associated modules for the kernel 18.104.22.168 which come with Slackware as an extra and because my system needs it a Celeron M 520 which
is in a Toshiba Celeron M 520 single core A135-S2376 laptop which I bought last month and promptly removed VISTA. Information is scanty.
SATA 130 GB SDA
I also chose XFS as the filesystem. I thought I had to use the mbr (sda)
and there is a notice of this about XFS. However, now to try out a new kernel I simply type "lilo" not "lilo -c -M /dev/sda mbr [-F]"
it seems the superboot /sda1 is /dev/sda ???? - any comments on this?
Are there different softlinks necessary for the /usr/include and /usr/src/linux
than previously for 32 bit kernels. I notice there is a build directory in /lib/modules/22.214.171.124/build
I am also having trouble with the ATI Xpress 200M integrated video "chip" and also
with the touchpad working under X Windows [any system]. I have tried several configurations. As I can't compile a kernel, and can't load the appropriate modules, i.e., ps2 mouse, I can't get gsynaptics to work.
Have you tried the huge26.s kernel(126.96.36.199) or test26.s(188.8.131.52)? If you use these kernel after installation you have to install the headers and modules. located on extra/ and testing/. And the source is recommend also to be installed.
