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 am attempting to use Fedora Core 5 from this mirror--ftp://ftp.net.usf.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/5/i386//iso/
At any rate, regardless of what mirror I use, I end up with the same result-- a failed install. The screen that comes up is Checking filesystems …
fsck.ext3: Permission denied while trying to open /dev/cciss!c0d0p5
You must have r/w access to the filesystem or be root
***An error occurred during the file system check
***Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
***Warning -- SELinux is active
*** Disabling security enforcement for system recovery
***Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.
Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue)
I have tried different mirrors for downloads with the same end result; however, if I download core 4 image & install, the server works. The hardware is a HP Dl360 G4P server, which probably plays no part in this, however I just thought I would throw that out there.
If this is a simple well-known fix, please excuse my ignorance as I do Windows Administration, and from time to time do Linux.
