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.

See the problem is, we need 2 check the system from outside any installed OS, that's why I need a boot-up application that can test all of that, I've got the old version of The Troubleshooter, but now you have to pay for it, so I can't get the new one.
I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, I'm helping someone look for software to do that with, so I'm afraid that I cannot give you anymore usefull info, but thanx for the herlp so far.
A very good diag tool is Ultimate Boot CD and I think while cd based they tell you how to run parts of it with floppies (stiffies).
I knew you were SAfrican by the term "stiffy" as it is the only place in the world they use the term. I have a copy on CD I use and it is excellent.
