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.

ORACLE ENTERPRISE LINUX 4 and Open SUSe 10.2 cannot find repository (The same DVD from which it boots, doesnt run live comes to manual setup becuase cannot find repository)
FEDORA 11 just shuts down laptop abruptly everytime during installation/filecopy (installing from DVD)
UBUNTU 6.10 "cannot start tty" (installing from CD)
I have downloaded the 64 Bit VERSION.. Could it be that the image I downloaded was corrupt? and all the other DVDs and CDs I purchased were also faulty?
The image did burn successfully on the CD and even on the SD card!
I copied the burned ISO image from the CD/USB HDD to my hard drive but it wont boot from the hard drive
tried various safe mode boot options NO ACPIs etc.. tried removing RAM Modules etc. the same errors at the same points from all the installation mediums
The Ubuntu 9.10 LIVE CD runs perfectly normal from CD/SD CARD/USB but i cannot install it to my hard drive.. currently I am using the SD card LIVE CD as i have no other operating system on my hard drive
please help!!!! this has been continuously going on since a week.. and I am not budging until this is fixed I cannot go back to windows..
There may be setting...I don't have your hardware...but I have read of similar bios issues.......
where you configure your hard drive to be ide mode
and maybe your optical drive has some settings as well?
A friend has a lappy like that, he runs Puppy Linux right off the livecd, no problems. But, Never did try a full install on that machine. Not much help, but.. the live CD is quite "lively" on that box.
