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 have installed Fedora 2 with minimal RPMS in my system, i have seen the size of thsoe is not taking more than a CD. i am interested in creating Live CD with that minimum RPM set, i have got some information from net, no-where it is related with Fedora, all with different distributions, each following different methods for doing this. pl tell me the procedure for creating.
thanks in advance.
i have gone thru that site, heis giving for slackware distribution, i want to create Live CD for Fedora 2 distribution, i am chaning the kernel also, i am taking latest kernel version than which is coming with Fedora 2. any way thanks for your reply.
actually, linux-live.org is supposed to work on any distro:
Linux Live is a set of bash scripts which allows you to create own LiveCD from every Linux distribution. Just install your favourite distro, remove all unnecessary files and then download and run these scripts.
anyways, you might want to read this article also, it'll give you a glimpse of the challenges ahead of you if you decide to make yor own build scripts:
yes, right now i am working on kernel 126.96.36.199, so no one will prefer backward compatibility, that's why i am interested in building that the distro on that kernel. thank u for reply. if u have any suggestions regarding this pl let me know

yes, i know... my point was that if you didn't have any specific technical needs for 2.6 then you have the OPTION of using the perfectly good 2.4 for the live cd, so that you could at least give linux-live.org a try...
i can also understand if you have some psychological reason for not wanting to have anything but 2.6 on the cd...
anyways, did you read the linux journal article i linked?? what did you think??
another thing you could do is search for some good fedora-based live cd distros and then study their build methods...
i agree with you, i think it's so much more worthwhile to actually read instructions and learn how to do this from the bottom up (making our own scripts) than it is to download someone else's magic scripts and patched kernels, etc... hehe...
of course distro build kits are nice and they do serve a purpose, but i'm not really a big fan of the methods linux-live.org uses for making live cds... if you want a distro build kit to play with on the side while you hack on your own live cd from scratch take a look at T2:
