Make command returns: "No rule to make target 'Foobar'"

Here's the update folks.  If you have a Packard Bell Legend, you have a PS/2
style
mouse.  Who'd a thunk it?  That goes in XF86Config in your pointer section.

Now for my newest dilemma!  I am ready to make my kernel so I type "make
config".
Up comes the message: "No rule to make target 'config'".  What does this
mean?  I am running Linux RedHat version 4.2.  A virtual bouquet of roses
goes to the first one to answer this one.  Thanks as always.

Are you in the top level directory of you kernel source tree?  Is
there a Makefile?

1. Why doesn't echo "text" 'command' "more text" work?

                 ^                                        ^
Wrong quotes, should be -
   echo "You have" `grep Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` "messages."
or -
   echo "You have `grep Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` messages."

But, another problem is, if you've no mail, /usr/spool/mail/me does not
exist, leading grep to say:
   grep: can't open /usr/spool/mail/me
Wc will still report 0.

You might try -
   sh -c 'echo "You have `grep 2>/dev/null Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` messages."'

Hope this helps.
