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 am attempting to create a custom install for fedora core 3. CD1 and 2 are unaltered but CD3 has extra files added. I have created a kickstart file for automated installation and have saved this on a floppy. When I go to install i used the command LINUX KS=FLOPPY and this reads the kickstart file fine.
This problem lies in the %POST section of the kickstart file. In this section i need to mount the CDROM so I can copy a few TAR balls over from the CD to the HDD. I was able to do this in Fedora Core 2 using the following comands
Fedora Core 2
cp..................(copy of files here)
However in Fedora code 3 This does not work...... It appears that it tries to mount the CD in /media/cdrom and the device is called /dev/hdd??????? I have tried using every possible combination of mounting but still cannot get it to mount the CD during the POST install.
