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.

1. When it comes to the boot-loader part, do i select:
*format-format floppy disk in /dev/fd0
*simple- make simple vmlinuz > /dev/fd0 bootdisk
*lilo - make lilo boot disk
*contiunue -leave bootdisk menu and continue with the configuration
I want it like in Mandrake were when I bootup, it I have a selection of either Windows or Linux. What selection would that be?
Second, On the Modem Configs the selection has it from COM1 to COM4 and then no-modem. But wheres COM5?? Look here in this sample:
Originally posted by unixfreak So, should I choose the floppy format? Because it says make boot disk. I dont know which one that is from the selections above. I want to boot Lilo automatically like I did in Mandrake.
dude, you don't need a boot floppy... forget about that... install lilo to the MBR and you're done...
just tell it you don't wanna make a boot floppy if it asks you... it's very simple...
