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.

Thanks for the quick response, but read my message again.
I am not trying to install a distribution. It is a linux utility package that runs on a bootable cd only. There are no floppy versions, no installation. The images on disk are too large for me to move to a floppy. I'm looking more for a way to boot this using a bootloader on a floppy and pointing to a cd somehow.
It's a specialized utility for accessing and changing some propietary software that sits on a hard disk.
The hardware setup is.. a FAT32 disk as the first disk, CDROM as a slave. Then the proprietary software on the first disk of the secondary. I must keep the first disk as FAT32, but I can put stuff on it, if necessary. But it still points to using a bootloader of some sort.
