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 have Windows XP on one HDD and on the other I have 11GB of unformatted /Unpatitioned space and my games. I would like to install Debian, I have SATA HDD's can someone lead me in the right direction, please.
The problem is I try to install it, I get to choose language then choose to install. Then it starts installing all of the essential drivers, gets up to Loading Module 'Sd_Mod' for 'SCSI disk support'... . Then it stops installing at 92%. Is there some special parametres I am supose to set or is it that I need special drivers for SATA HDD's?
Or am I not supose to try and boot from the Debian DVD ISO?
Also how do I make a partition and what format do I use?
I have never done this before, and need a lot of noobish instructions, thanks.
I don't know what to do. My HDD's are set as JBOD, any hep apprieciated thank you.
