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'm running vmware fusion on a macbook pro. I installed opensuse 10.2, and I'm trying to install the vmware tools. I've got the tools in the guest OS, but when I run the vmware-config-tools.pl, it detects that the kernel headers don't match the updated kernel.
I've installed gcc and all available updates, but my kernel headers don't match the installed kernel:
I tried manually installing kernel-source-188.8.131.52.....rpm from the web, and yast gives me an error saying that this would conflict with kernel-source-184.108.40.206-0.5 that's currently installed. I'm not sure why the 8-0.5 header files aren't installed as well.
I think the opensuse folks forgot to publish an updated linux-headers package or it isn't necessary. You need to configure an update repository and update the kernel and kernel-source packages through it.
