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 was going thru text rescue mode on a debian lxde disk. Before, it always called my disks hda hdb(hard drives) and sda(flash drive). Thru rescue mode, it called them sda,sdb,(hard drives) and sdc(flash drive I booted from). Could someone tell me why this is?
I would like you to try another kernel, and another ramdisk. You'll probably solve it that way. And I wouldn't worry about lilo. Do you need a ramdisk? If your basics (root filesystem format, chipset, pc partition tables support) are compiled in, you don't need a ramdisk.
I don't think it's a lilo fault. Lilo is finished.
I am pretty sure I know what a kernel is. Are you recommending going to a earlier kernel? Tho I wouldn't know how to change it without changing installation discs. The only thing I've ever compiled is java.
The only thing I know about a ramdisk is it might have something to do with the file initrd.img.gz.
You would have walk me thru either of these. I don't think Lilo is finished since it worked for me when grub's only option wouldn't. Grub also didn't detect my windows 2000 installation like it was supposed to.
I am writing this from the the computer on debian fvwm-crystal

Just a different one to eliminate the kernel itself as a possible problem. Ditto with ramdisk.
Firefox54, this is post #20. Most problems get fixed much quicker. That tells me something you are taking as OK is not OK. Is there not a choice of kernels on your installation CD? Why not use another of those. You don't need it to finish loading, just to start.
Likewise, leave out the initrd line and see what happens. check for another initrd on your install cd.
