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 have an AMD Athlon 2400+
80gb Hard drive
I am trying to install SuSE Linux 9.2 Professional. I have been able to install SuSE Linux 9.1 Personal, but 9.2 Pro will not detect my hard disk. I am able to start the install normally and once it gets to YAST, I get the error below. When I checked the Kernel messages I also saw
Buffer I/O Error, dev hda and something about sectors and blocks.
I really want to get his OS up and running.
I even reformatted my comp.
10gb - Windows XP Pro
65gb - Unallocated
Windows XP Pro loads up fine
when the kernel is streaming before YAST2 begins
hda: samsung sv8004h, ATA DISK Drive
then the error I get when YAST begins is
ERROR: No hard disks were found for the installation. Please check your hardware!
then if I will to the partitioning tab which displays "no disk found"
"No disks found, please us the Update CD for installation."
