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 an external cd burner for winX. I have several questions related to downloading and burning from win98. I don't have broadband, but a friend with w98 does and is willing to d/l for me to a folder, then I hope that I can go and retrieve the linux to my external burner. IS this possible to do. OR do I have to have the cable modem send the file to the burner directly? I am new to burning...only had cdrom prior.
What I want to do is d/l something like arch or knoppix first to learn some linux on first. Then make the 'jump' to installed linux.
1. If I d/l to a win partition, will the burn from there be okay?
1.a Is there anyway to burn a linux cdrom using w98?
2. Will this affect the win partition in any way. Don't want to loooooose a friend that way!!!
I just d/l'd hal91 to flappy, er, floppy and it boots up my ole k6-2 350 okay, don't know yet what to do with it, but the prompt comes up. And as you can see, w98 still works.
Ps: The wife's ole 'freebie' ... the p120 nec junker (she gripes about it) did too after 'tricking' her into booting it. She likes challenges, and has been yacking about linux for 3 years. Now that we have two ole junkers, time to mess one up, er, load linux...hehehehe.
Hey, don't get mad, I wise crack a lot!! I tried linux years ago, and had it up... Unfortunately, I have slept twice since then and will have to re-learn it the hard way.
She, the wife,
