Almost the last thing in Chapter 6 is "Configuring your keyboard."   It 
"Run the following command to patch the current default keymap into the 
kernel source. You will have to repeat this command whenever you unpack 
a new kernel:"

loadkeys -m /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/defkeymap.map.gz > \

The target above /usr/src/linux-2.4.22...  indicates that linux should 
be unpacked into /usr/src.  Yet, early in Chapter 6 linux is unpacked 
into /source.  Later, in Chapter 7, there is no indication that it is 
proper to unpack linux for kernel compilation into /usr/src rather 
than /sources.  Where should linux be unpacked for proper compilation 
of the kernel?

thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, 
because there will be no words in which to express it."
