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.

9.2 has been releaced as a final. So it's no longer RC2. If you can find the ISO's for it, d/l all 3, burn them and install. You'll like it more then RH being new to the game. It's a lot easier to get used to.
It looks like you have to join their club to download ISOs (not free), but what you could do is this (assuming you have a decent internet connection: go to any of the mirrors, and navigate to the images folder, download the network.img. (take note of the ftp site, and the base directory of the mandrake distro.)
Then go to the utils folder, and download the rawwrite, use rawwrite to write the network image to a floppy, and boot up with the floppy.
Then you enter the info as needed for the ip and such, and then you're set to install over the network. (Be prepared to leave it on overnight)
Can you tell me where you got the 9.2 ISO's? And were they big enough to fit on 3 CD ROMS (I've heard some ISO's are bigger than 700mb therefore I'm assuming can't fit into a 700MB CD).
A friend of mine ordered them from the internet,and yes they are on 3 CD's,he also got a fourth cd that has some extra RPM's on it ,like wine and a few others, what they refer to as a bounus cd.I think he gave $15 for them.
