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.

So I have a laptop, 1000h EEE PC with XP and Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu in the laptop so that I can install my Fedora. So the Fedora recognized the Ubuntu and formatted the Ubuntu partition. But before the installation was complete, my laptop shut down. When I turned it on, the Grub error 17 is already there, and I can't boot either my Windows and the Ubuntu. So I got into the BIOS but it also can't boot from the CD. And now I am stuck. I already inserted Ubuntu, Fedora and the XP into the ROM but still won't work. Do you think Knoppix can help me? I just downloaded all distros from the net so I have no idea if these CD's are liveCD or not.
I just posted a response in your other post ...
A live CD or live DVD is a CD or DVD containing a bootable computer operating system.
One working CD is enough to install. The installation of most distributions is very easy, and if you're not trying to maintain some sort of setup on your hard disk, you can just use their default setup. If you're trying to preserve windows, you'll need at least a root and swap partition. Ubuntu and Fedora will both take care of the rest - other than whatever configuring you have to do.
I saw your post joe. Thank you for the reply But before I can boot these CD's, Error 17 will show up first so I can't get it to work. The only thing I can enter is the laptop's BIOS. I inserted the CD into an external DVD-ROM, changed my 1st priority boot to CD, save and exit the bios but error 17 will still show.
If you get a Grub error, the system boots from HD. So make sure that you indeed boot from CD first (use a CD that is known to be OK like windows installation or the CD that you used for the Ubuntu installation).
Idk. I installed Ubuntu, Fedora, XP, 7, Office using this ROM. Then suddenly it stopped booting when the grub error appeared. I think the problem was my ROM. Do you think it's possible my ROM stopped reading?
Idk. I just plugged it in my desktop the plugged it back to my notebook. I have installed Fedora 11 to my notebook by installing first Ubuntu (I felt awfully bad for using Ubuntu). The problem is, how can I get the wireless running?
