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.

Trying to install Debian Sarge on my spare parts computer.
New ECS 741GX-M mobo
Old Duron 750mhz cpu
New Rosewill 512mb ddr
Old compaq 250w psu
Old no-name DVD drive
Not exactly sure what installation I'm doing. I don't have a cd burner so i did this over a friends house. did the business card cd in late june.
So i boot off the CD, set everything up, partition the drive with the wizard for a desktop machine, I chose a few different mirrors at different points, and it gets to the installing the base system step. I have to rename the usr/lib/debootstrap/scripts/sarge to etch, but thats no problem.
It'll get to 59% complete on the installing base packages and i get the red screen error. I did a tail on the messages file in var/log/ and see this.... not sure if this is the pertinent error, maybe someone can verify.
