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.

here is the newest situation,
I downloaded bootdisk.img and managed to create a bootdisk, and did a linux mediacheck at the boot prompt and got the result failed for all the three shrike ISOs.
am I missing something or what........?
yes, I donwloaded md5 program for windows, and created and verified cheksums. those were faulty.
and at the boot prompt I (with linuxbootdisk) checked them with linux mediacheck, and came up with the answer "failed"
I did a google search for red hat and downloaded from a site called "lerr...." or somewhat, can't remeber the name.
I downloaded using IExplorer not the FTP. Now I am going to download using WS-ftp.
if you know of a secure mirror that contains original Redhat 9 goodies, please let me know.
It takes me about 2.5 hours also. I download 1 at a time, this is because by d/ling 3 isos at the same time you will find your speeds cut so each downloads at a third of the speed - it will still take hours.
Well, how safe is your setup to begin with? I have gone to other sites while downloading without any problems. The more you download the slower your connection is going to be. I usually download at night while I am sleeping or if I go out for awhile, and when I get back, the download is complete.
