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 been using Fedora core 3 in my computer. But I wanted to install Fedora core 5. I downloaded the iso images of test 2 version and tried installing it. Well unfortunately I couldn't install it because of some bug in the version (it wouldn't say what bug nor did I know how to find the bug). So gave a try to fc4. Strangely I couldn't install it. This time it didn't go any further to even display the fc4 screen. Well I have a SATA hardrive. Many of my friends had a problem with installing fc4 in a system having SATA hardrive. I presumed that even I had the same problem.
I had uninstalled some programs from the existing fc3. When i wanted to reinstall it asked me for the installation cd's which i had lost. And even collecting the rpms ( and the pestering dependency problems) was way too a painful thing to do. so i thought of going for a fresh installation of fc3. So now I downloaded the iso's for fc3, checked the md5sum. When i try to install this time i got this error...
Loading isoLinux: Disk error IO , AX = 4280, drive EF
So then I tried downloading mandriva (latest)and tried installing it. THis time i got the same kind of error.. (with AX = different)
isoLinux: Disk error IO , AX = 4800, drive EF
Can anyone figure out what is happening? If so can u help me??
Hardware: Intel 865 GBF, SATA hardrive (SEagate), Intel 32 bit 3GHz.
