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 downloaded all three iso's of Fedora Core 1. When i try to burn the first disk nero tells me that the entered block size does not correspond to the image length and that theblock size may be wrong. Then if i ignore and burn anyway, it fails the mediacheck, and won't install. The other two disks are fine. I have downloaded the first iso 3 times from different sites and still get the same problem. Any ideas?
Distribution: Fedora Core 2, SuSE 9.1 Professional
Try another mirror, just to see...however, I know that is has got to be getting frustrating
downloading all of thes 650MB images.....I have been having NO problems. I just downloaded
the first disk from one of the mirrors (sorry, I can't remember which one) and burned the image with XCDRoast and it went without a hitch...this was just two days ago.
It's always good to check the MD5 sum after you finish downloading, too; run 'md5sum' on the downloaded ISO and make sure the output is the same as in the .md5 file they usually provide for big downloads. If they match, and you're still having problems, you at least know it's not a corrupted ISO.
If your connection keeps dropping before the download is complete, then the chances are high. Try one at a time. I've had problems where I was on a college campus and downloading in my dorm and there was just too much traffic. Certain times of the day I could barely download 1 much less 3. Or maybe try to download all 3 but each one from a different place.
I'd say try one and if that works then maybe try 2. Or one per night and then one while you go off to school or work or whatever. I've set my alarm to wake up insanely earlier to start a new download before.
