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.

Yesterday I wasn't able to access /dev/hdc for some reason. I tried a fresh install of Slack 9 and the 5 times I tried, I kept getting segmentation fault errors. 2 of the 5 times the install/setup finished, I tried to compile a kernel and got more segmentation fault errors and compiler errors. I tried to install Windows and got some error on a blue screen in the top left corner. I tried a few more times to install Windows and it kept freezing at the setup screen. Obviously some part of my hardware is faulty. Would it be maybe ram or hd?
you know what... you don't have over 1 Gig of ram do you? I have 1024 MB ran (2 x 512 sticks) and I compiled 'big memory' support into my kernel. After that when I would be compiling software I would get random errors ... sometimes in ./configure or make. then I would rerun make or configure and the problem would not be there. So I promptly turned off bigmem support in the kernel and deal with not being able to use the remaining 120+ megs of memory.
Distribution: Gentoo 2004.2: Who needs exmmpkg when you have emerge?
ive had the windoze freezing during install program, which is why im using mandrake 8.2 now but i didnt think about replacing my RAM because i dont get freezing on linux. its probably a BIG bug in windoze, or maybe my compy just doesnt like windoze
