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.

Hello, I have downloaded the Large Complete installation Image of Debian 7 (64bit, torrent DL), burned it into a DVD and rebooted my laptop (made sure that I chose to boot from DVD), nothing boots I just go back to my main OS like I havenít inserted any DVD, I also tried to boot it using a USB, didnít work, tried on my other laptop, didnít work, tried the small installation image, didnít work, tried 32bit version, didnít work, I tried many other Linux distribution and each one of them worked, Why isnít Debian booting at all?
It's a long shot, but, when you burned the DVD, you did use the "burn image" tool in your burning program and you know that your laptop is capable of booting from a DVD. In the early days of DVDs, there were laptops that could boot from CDs, but could not boot from DVDs.
