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 burned them to CD on my XP Pro box using Nero 6.
I put FC_1 i386 in the new computer listed above. It runs through the boot then it pops up to the "how you want to install screen."
I tried to basic install.
I tried the text install.
I tried the noprobe install.
I tried the linux askmethod install.
But all for ways come to the point where, there is a blue screen with the Alt/Tab, Space, F12 options at the bottom and the Installing Fedora Core 1 at the top.
Granted, this is a fresh installation, the computer had nothing on it before prior to the installation. The computer has done nothing that I can see. Last night I started the install and the CD sat there spinning for 12 hours.
Currently, I am running the memtest86, I know the Memory is in good working order but it is better then the blue screen with the 3 options that do not work.
OH BTW, I have 3 different sets of CD's from ISO's, I got 1 set from my company, 1 set my friend, and 1 set I burned myself.
Try formatting your HD in Fat32 or NTFS then reboot with the Fedora Core 1 cd. Let it automatically partition and choose "remove all partitions on this system". I've noticed that alot of installs hang when installing on a raw HD.
Well, I install the Harddrive Makers Disk Utility to 2 Floppy Disks. I ran the utility but the utility install a Windows NT System File. So with the same utility, I ran the Zero Fill Wizard, basicallly Erased the whole disk. Then I formatted with the NFS base Partition of all 40GB.
I shutdown the computer for a few minutes.
Booted the computer with the Fedora Core 1 boot CD, KA-BAAM it started the install.
Now after some sleep, Fedora Server is still running like a gem.
My only problem now is, I should find a workbook or something because I do not know what to do next, but until then, I am going to play and see what I can find.
