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.

THANK YOU scott_R for bringing that up...I have been using an old floppy to boot from and i hope to god that i believe this is why i have been getting the error message. I thought maybe it was the Very old floppys to go out in a a lot of runs.
But when ive tried Guru and LiLO...I put it on my master boot record and it did this when i booted my computer. Windose is on my master hdd and Redhat on the slave hdd.
But i havn't installed Guru or Lilo but i have before and when i booted my computer all it did was display GURU_ and just hang there and do absolutly nothing. Lilo was the same way except it displayed L_ and just hung there and do nothing. I put it on my master boot record and it did this when i booted my computer. Windose is on my master hdd and Redhat on the slave hdd.
~i had to reformate my hdd with windows but i didn't give a f*#$.~
How can i get rid of lilo or Guru if this happens again.
Or Is there a diagnostic maybe i could cheak the floppy with i go into my computer and click on A:\ and it still dispalys BOOT,INTRID,LDLINUX,VMLINUZ, SYSLINUX.cfg.
