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've got a problem with my ts-5700. i tried to set up my own linux-image on a
cf-card and set up grub. if i boot this image in a vmware, grub loads the kernel
and the boot-process beginns (it failes at "kernel panic: vfs not syncing.." but thats
not the problem..)
on my ts-5700 grub starts as usual with
Loading stage 1.5.
Loading, please wait...
then it waits for the 3 seconds-timeout and then i just get this on the console:
yes well I was trying to explain that I do not have a cf card, so can not test what I am about to say.
you may need to use another computer, if you have one to try this
1) format your card to a bootable kernel format eg ext2
mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdx where sdx is what your card is detected as
2) populate grub onto it
mount /dev/sdx /mnt/temp
cp /usr/share/grub/i386-pc/stage* /usr/share/grub/i386-pc/e2fs_stage1_5 /boot/grub/menu.lst /mnt/temp/grub
...(or where ever grub backup lib is,eg it may be /lib/grub/)
3) edit the grub menu
either open a editor and navigate to /mnt/tmp/grub/menu.lst
or vi /mnt/tmp/grub/menu.lst
4) concerning your menu concerns, I do not have a single board low power computer so I am guessing that you can still have boot order of cf card.....you may know the answer but your answer did not help one bit and I do not blame you for dismissing my ignorance.
assuming your card can be the first boot device try hd0 in the menu.
5) populate the balance of the operating system that you prefer.Since you mention linux-image but give no details I assume you know more than me on that matter.
