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.

im runnning a toshiba prtege 7010ct with a scsi panasonic kxl-807a through a pcmcia card. i changed the bios to load from cdrom and slack 9.1 does boot up. i have set my swap (is double my 96mb ram sufficient?) and set a /usr/local partition of 800mb and a the rest of the 4.2gig for the root partition. i used fdisk to set all partitions. i proceeded to run setup and mount the partitions and set the swap and other partitions as well. i have gotten all the way up to the "source" part of the slackware 9.1 installation and when it attempts to locate media it cannot seem to find my cdrom. do i need some sourt of linux drivers? or do i just need to mount the drive (somehow!?)? im a newbie to linux though i do know quite a few commands well and learned linux (a year ago) on a telnet shell account. i would very much appreciate anyones help/input.
oh and i did see the linuxquestions thread in linuxquestions.org /questions/archive/18/2003/10/4/105403 (not allowed to post links yet)
and thought it might help but im not sure. thanks again
