Linux Newbie

By mkrain ·
I am new to Linux. I am currently running Mandrake 8.1. I tried to get RedHat to atleast configure to the bare minimum but no luck. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any tips/websites on Linux that might offer me a way to increase my knowledge of this new OS. I know how to install some software and some unix but nothing about compiling kernels or the more advanced feature. Anything will be appreciated. I am sure that this will help all those out there like me.

configure to the bare minimum?

by wongt005 In reply to Linux Newbie

Could you explain a little bit more of what you're trying to do, please? Are you saying that you're trying to install RedHat to an older machine?
