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.

When I try to use a floppy disk I get "you do not have access rights to this location" I get this even as root. I've checked the permission and they are ok. In the fstab file the line for the floppy reads:
Try changing your fstab file entry for your floppy to this:/mnt/floppy /mnt/floppy supermount fs=vfat,dev=/dev/fd0 0 0. This should work if you're root. As a user, you may have to add to the line user. Like this:/mnt/floppy /mnt/floppy supermount user,fs=vfat,dev=/dev/fd0 0 0. I hope this works.
I have only used Red Hat 5.2 and TurboLinux, so I really don't have much experience. The two seem to be similar. They both use rpm's to install software. They also seem to locate config files in the same places. It could be that TurboLinux is based on Red Hat.
Yes, TurboLinux is an Asian based distro. I don't know which country it's from.
As to why I chose it, I couldn't resist the price. It was $20 dollars US and there was a $20 dollar rebate. I'm thinking about trying Slackware or Debian.
That's cool. I seriously recommend Slackware - it's a classic and a favorite among many linux users. I personally believe that it is a distro with personality - a lot of the options are very intuitive, and it's a pleasure to use. See if you can get hold of the new version 8 (have you seen www.linuxiso.org? Great site for linux distros, you can download ISOs and burn them to Cd). If you can manage to get it, I'd like a review
