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.

FEATURE: Recompiling the kernel for Compaq Presario 7xx Notebooks ACPI solution
Posted on Monday, September 1st @ 12:04 by PCLinux (Netherlands)
Recompiling the kernel
The proper steps for recompiling the kernel on Mandrake cooker are the following:
1) Install the package "kernel-source"
2) Make yourself root and go to /usr/src/linux
3) type: "make mrproper"
4) type: "make xconfig" (if you are in an X environment)
A window will pop up, which has all the configuration options of the kernel.
Here is what I changed from the defaults:
Processor type and features
Processor family: from 'i586' to 'athlon/duron/k7'
AMD mobile Athlon/Duron Powernow!: from 'm' to 'y'
Local APIC support on uniprocessors: from 'y' to 'n'
PCI hotplug support
Support for PCI hotplug (EXPERIMENTAL): from 'm' to 'n'
Advanced power management BIOS support: from 'm' to 'n'
AC adapter: from 'm' to 'y'
Battery: from 'm' to 'y'
Button: from 'm' to 'y'
Fan: from 'm' to 'y'
Processor: from 'm' to 'y'
Thermal Zone: from 'm' to 'y'
Toshiba laptop extras: from 'm' to 'n'
5) type: "make dep && make clean && make bzImage && make modules"
This took aproximately 2 hours to compile.
6) type: "make modules_install"
7) type: "make install"
This will install the correct references into the boot-loader (at least it did in grub)
Works perfect. (Was from an article where I can not find the source from!)
