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.

For some reason whenever I try to install any of those versions (those are the only ones I have tried) it freezes right on the second screen (with like alt f4 to view kernel and some other stuff at the bottom). It is always at the same part, and I can't figure out whats wrong. 2 of the disks I have used before on another machine. I tried the text install, no luck, it all stops at the one screen.

I figured it out last night, sorry I didn't post sooner, but I had work today so didnt really have time - although I am at work now, getting ready to leave. Anyway, it was a problem detecting my ram it would appear. All I did was change my mem to 1024 and it worked. There is another problem now though, If I leave my USB's at 2.0, it won't boot up - it gets stuck at loading my USB ports. When I just made them 1.1 it boots fine. Is there anyway around this, so that in the off chance I need the USB 2.0 I would have it?
why don't chek out our media
i too faced same kind of problems
it may happen that they work fine on another machines,there u need to check for some physical damage to ur CD's etc.. also it depends on ur CD rom drive
Sorry, I forgot about this forum untill I recieved notice that somone posted here today... Anyway, I figured out the problem. When I deactivated USB 2.0 on my chipset the problem went away. I initially thought it had to do with ram, but I was wrong. I dont know how I am going to fix it though so that I can use USB 2.0. Honestly I havent been using linux alot lately...I'm about ready to check out of it honestly =( . Not that I think windows is better but there are alot of games that I want to play that I can't play on linux. I will probobly run it on a server when I get one...Anyway good luck.
So here is exactly what I did. I go into the bios. Then I go to onboard devices (or something like that). There is a choice for USB. If you go to it you can switch it to 1.1 instead of 2.0, thats what I did and it worked.
