Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am wondering if there is a way to boot a FreeBSD sysinstall session from GRUB. This, for example, can be accomplished for many GNU/Linux distributions by using the appropriate installation boot kernel and initrd in the distribution release tree. I am not sure if these exist in BSD, or where to find them. My Google searches on this topic have thus far been fruitless. Why not just burn the CDs? I don't have any CDRs at the moment, but further more am ideologically opposed to CDs as a distribution medium in comparison to reasonable sources like FTP.
