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'm currently planning for an upgrade and looking to select a new processor... for many reasons (alright, it's the cost), I've decided to opt for the AMD processors. Now I just want to check - are there any problems with AMD processors and Linux? I'm asking 'cause I remember seeing somewhere that non-Intel processors can cause 'trouble'. I'm no hardware guru so I'm not aware of what 'trouble' is, which is kinda why I'm asking around here
The processors I'm looking at are AMD XP1700-2000+. I'm running RH7.2, if that changes anything...
One more question - when I replace the processor, will Linux b*tch? Will I need to reinstall? Thanks in advance, guys.
I've had problems installing both mandrake8.2 and RH7.3 on two AMD systems. one was a 900mhz and the other was a 1.4 T-bird.
Mandrake wont even allow me to pass the first screen (where you can select text, expert, etc.). Well, It passes but the next screen, which probes all your HW(?) locks and at the bottoms says kernel panic no init.
Redhat 7.3 goes through the install Okm but locks up randomly during installation process (when installing all the packages) . I can still ALT+CTL to other screens and mouse functions OK.. it's just the install that stops.
