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 am hopeful someone can supply some assistance or point me in the right direction for assistance.
I am a newbie trying to build a Edubuntu (6.06.1) thin client network for a local school. I am using a PIII 500MHz w/ 256MB ram as a server and a PII 350MHz w/ 64MB ram as the 1st client.
I have installed EdUbuntu on the server with 2 nics. One nic connected through a router to the internet and the second connected to a switch. I have connected the client to the switch and am using a floppy rom boot image to boot the client.
When I boot the client it seems to be happy, loads all the pxe cfgs, seems to boot the linux kernel, and then I see the Ubuntu screen. It seems successful "loading essential drivers... OK". Next is "Mounting root file system... OK".
However after this I get a blank screen with a blinking cursor. I can type in this screen but do not know if this is correct or what to do next. I am trying to get to the same familiar environment as I have on the server so the students will be able to use the thin clients in class.
Does anyone know what to do to help me move this along.
Distribution: Mac OS X Leopard 10.6.2, Windows 2003 Server/Vista/7/XP/2000/NT/98, Ubuntux64, CentOS4.8/5.4
Is it possible you could install Edubuntu from the CD on the thin client directly? If it can boot up and install then we know that your hardware is fine with Edubuntu. Otherwise, if your system is still stalling on bootup from the install CD, then you know that's not good (hardware wise).
