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.

After Lilo has selected linux to be the operating system to boot
it says something like:
Ok, booting the kernel.
After that nothing happens... I let some minutes pass and then I turn the computer off.
could be the installed kernel doesn't have support for some kind of hardware...
could it be possible to boot from the floppy, copy the kernel image from the floppy to the hard drive, edit lilo.conf to include the new floppy kernel, run lilo, reboot and try to boot the machine off the new kernel image?
I (succesfully) used (dualboot win +) Suse linux until recently and wanted to switch to (dualboot win +) ubuntu.
ik have a seperate drive on which my suselinux is installed.
If try a ubuntu live cd or install cd I get the exact same hang
-uncompressing linux Ok. Booting the kernel *hang*
how come suse and red hat runned on my system and this ubuntu doesn't???
I have a AMD 2200+ with 1Gb ram and 2 discs (120 Gb(data + win) & 20Gb (OS)
I don't understand what is the problem, didn't find many info on the web..
I would like to introduce my family to this linux (already got the cd's)
but can't get the bloody thing to work on my own pc.
-also tried knoppix / beatrix / slax
they hang too before loading the kernel
Does anybody recon this problem and know how to solve it??
I hope so
thanx in advance!!
