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 a Toshiba Notebook. This moddle does not come with a CDROM. It has an external floppy, but it is drad. I have another linux box (2, linux server and a play box). I will remove this 20gig HDD and partition it on my main system, and copy the install files over, I am gust having a problem fighureing out how to get it to boot though. I have a USB flopp that I am borrowing, but I can't seem to boot of it.
Anyways. If someone could, can you please pst a way for me to make a partition bootable so I can then get this notebook working with legal software. :P
Another question is that it is only a 266 Pentium. What is a good distro, that includes a good GUI. I prefere KDE, but I will setle for less. I am rumming Slack 9.2 and Mandrake 2.2. When my main box is a nd working, I will be testing 10.0 Betta2 for Mandrake. I know that Mandrake liles memory, I have only 96MB SD in this notebook, that is all I can put in here.
I am finished blabing, for now. If anyone has any suggestins and/or help for me, I greatly appreate it.
