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.

Resized partition with 'parted' utility.
I have 10GB disk and I devided it half to half. About 4.8 Gb for Linux.
I started installation CD. (Purchased)
When it gets to installing packages, there is always an error:
"There was an error installing 'filename'. This can indicate media failure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems. This is a fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try your install again."
I tried 4 times.
Every time there is a problem with different file!!!
10 GB HDD
192 MB memory
i had this same problem and tracked it to bad RAM. i had windows working on the other drive and it randomly crashed. redhat installation wouldnt work at all. make sure your memory is good.if it fails on random files this is probably a memory issue. change the RAM chip with your friends one or something and check again
