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.

The floppy boot image can be downloaded from the same place you got the ISO: boot-0.8.0.img
You may need to shorten the filename for rawrite to read it. Or if you have a Linux system, do "dd if=boot-0.8.0.img of=/dev/fd0"
Distribution: Slackware 10.1 Knoppix 3.4, Damn Small Linux 0.8.0
I created a bootdisk using boot-0.8.0.img that I downloaded from the net. When I start up the computer it detects the bootdisk but when it says loading kernel.... it never finishes.
The computer that I'm trying DSL on has the following specs:
4X CD ROM
Would that be enough to run DSL and later install it onto the HD?
My boot-disk needs some time. Then there is a logo on the left upper corner. When this logo appears there are two possibilities:
1. Enter (standard boot)
2. options menu
If the logo do not appear, perhaps your floppy is not set up correctly in the BIOS.
Have you tried already another boot image from another distribution to be sure the floppy is set up correctly to handle disks with rawfiles on it?
