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.

Downloaded Debian 4.0 2 week's ago. I downloaded all 3 DVD iso's from official torrent of Debian. My friend burnt all 3 iso's. 1st DVD is not a bootable DVD. We thought it's a problem of DVD writer.
I burnt branded SONY media with 8x speed on newly installed SONY DVD writer with Ahead Nero 7.5.x version.
Same problem. Debian 4.0 DVD no.1 can not show install screen. We downloaded "net install"
and mounted debian dvd under /opt and done installation.
The images are to be burned as an ISO image. Do not copy the contents of the image to the disc, it won't work (as you've noticed). Nero does offer an option to burn iso images, but somehow Nero doesn't want users to know about it as the've hidden it pretty well
I downloaded DVD 1 ISO from Official HTT Psite of Debian., Japan.
When I open it in power ISO, it shows that the respective ISO is bootable.
But when I open the previous ISO ( i.e. DVD 1 ofcourse which is 1st install DVD. ) in powe ISO, it shows that the repsctive ISO is not bootable.
I guess it's a bug in a DVD image uploaded by Debian at Debian torrents. 1 of friend from United States, downloaded 1st DVD ISO from HTTP site of Debian. He had no problem. The DVD is bootable.
Anybody downloaded ISO of Debian from Torrent and had problem ?
That's one of the reasons I like using K3B to burn images. the first thing it does it give you the md5 sum of the image so you can verify it before clicking the burn button, how convenient.
Agreed. K3B is an excellent application! I suspect a bad md5 sum in this situation. I suggest one last test.
Try to boot the install media on a different PC; if it does not boot on several PCs then you know there's something wrong with your burn.
P.S. Added later: If it does boot successfully on another PC then you probably have a hardware incompatibility issue with your PC. Good luck.
