Why a Kernel should be compiled?
By default kernel module version has to be disabled when developing new modules, but this is enabled by default in some older versions of popular distribution.
Apart from this there are many other reasons why a kernel has to be recompiled . I’m not listing all those reasons due to lack of space.
Following are the things to be taken into consideration before compilation.
Creating copy of complete kernel sources at different location other than /usr/src .
Installation of CVS and CVSUP
Installing CVS on Redhat Linux 7.1/7.2/7.3
The following steps give simple steps to install CVS software on Redhat Linux 7.1/7.2/7.3
1) Download the tarball cvs-1.11.1p1.tar.gz from http://www.cvshome.com
2) Run “gunzip cvs-1.11.1p1.tar”. You will get file called
3) Then extract this file using command
“tar –xvf cvs-1.11.1p1.tar”.
4) Then go to directory cvs-1.11.1p1.
5) There you will find a file called INSTALL. Read it once carefully.
To begin testing the distribution, download the latest Knoppix image
and burn it to a CD-ROM. There are several mirrors on the

If you choose to download, get the latest version; Knoppix has a release almost every week. A suffix of EN at the end of the file name specifies that is the English version. The command to burn a CD out of the ISO under Linux is:

Surely I have gone mad ! You might think, what has Linux to do with horses

To mount a disk , there are two necessary conditions
What is a Web Server?
Before we get into the
particulars of Apache, let\'s talk about what a web server is. A
web server is a program that runs
on a host computer (also, confusingly enough, called a web server) that serves
up web sites. In other words, the web server program sits around awaiting

web servers can serve include HTML documents, plain text, images, sounds,
Welcome! We meet again. It has been some time now since I\'ve heard you swear at your computer so I assume
your Linux installation went well and you have been experimenting with your
new system However If you are one of those wanderers who ever so often chance
you will find a detailed guide to installing Linux.
Debian is a free or Open Source, operating system (OS) for your computer. It's like a tower. At the base is the kernel. On top of that are all the basic tools. Next is all the software that you run on the computer. At the top of the tower is Debian-carefully organizing and fitting everything so it all works together.
Apache is undoubtedly the best server serving the Internet. With more than 40 percent market share in the "Web server" arena, it stands out to be the most preferred server. Years of coding have yielded ripe fruits in the form of simple configuration files along with its small 2.5 MB size. And with more and more people embracing Linux the server's popularity is increasing.

SSLtelnet/SSLftp are also available but do not seem to be in such wide use.
SSH is a better telnet than telnet -- it even handles remote X sessions transparently,
letting you ssh into another machine and run X aps there with the display automagically
