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.

I am running Fedora 10 Linux distro, and somewhat of a newbie. I attempted creating a "Clonezilla-SysrescCD" multi-boot custom CD, following the directions on the site, http://clonezilla-sysresccd.hellug.g...html#sysresccd (the section "Creating Multi Boot custom CD", but received an error that I don't have FreeDOS. I looked it up, and their site states that it's installation package will overwrite an existing OS... I guess it must be installed on it's own partition. Again, being a newbie, I believe continuing with this will be way over my head. There is a multi-boot version for download, but is quite outdated. I emailed the site owner/Clonezilla-SysRescCD multi-boot creator, whom replied that he doesn't have time right now to recreate the multi-boot download.
If there is anyone else out there willing to give it a try, following the instructions at the link above, I'd appreciate it... and, I think many others may as well, as these are both great tools, and very convenient if compiled into a multi-boot CD.
Thanks all... I do like both Clonezilla & SystemRescueCD, and know that both packages work great! This is the reason I hoped to stick with them, preferably with a multi-boot CD. But, currently, I do have each iso's on separate CD's.
