Hello everyone.

I had a few questions.... I have a fairly good working knowledge of Linux 
(the basics anyway), setting up mail, X, etc. But I was curoius, can anyone 
reccomend any good books? Any particular book that would be better to learn 
some of the more advanced stuff? Reccomendations would be appreciated.

Also, when I'm booting Gentoo... I installed the ISO, followed all the 
instructions on the website, but when Grub tries to boot, I end up at a Grub 
prompt. However, I am able to boot if I manually type the following lines 
below, the system boots fine. I'm just not sure where I went wrong with the 
configuration of the Grub menu file.

root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3

I'm sorry if this is the wrong list to be posting in, but I figured it 
definately wouldn't be wanted in gentoo-announce. =)
