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.

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.

hi sorry if this has been answered in a previous thread but i tried searching and couldn't find anything.
i have just bought a copy of mandrake 10 download collection. its just the 4 download able ISO's that a local shop downloaded and put onto disk.
2 installation disks
1 International disk
1 mandrake move disk
i am wanting to make a dual boot with winxp that is already on my computer.
i inserted the 1st install disk and made a boot floppy then restarted a blue screen saying "Press F1 for more options" and "Press Enter to install or repair" i pressed enter then a black screen came up saying boot failed: Please change disk and press a key to continue so i put the 2nd install disk in and it did the same thing the blue screen then black screen saying boot failed. i had read on here that some people had got it to work by starting with the 2nd CD first so i did that and got the same problem.
if anyone has any ideas that would be great.
i have never used linux before but have used windows 9x, 2000, and xp for a few years and done a few installs of 95 and xp both fresh installs on new pc's and reinstalls.
