This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

I am new to linux and I am trying to install linux on another partition, however when I put the disk in the only thing that happens is I get a list of files on the disk. it does not autorun anything. Am I doing something wrong or do I have a bad disk? How do I correctly install this?
Set the bios to start from CDrom( as suggested) . Put Cdr in .
Suse starts from cdr, you get some simple questions about Mode (choose new installation) - Keyboard layout - Mouse -
then it will make suggestions about the partitions and resize if necessary (you can change anything)
A default system with office applications is preset
You get some question where Suse installs the master boot record,
Time zone is checked .
You get suggestions, if you don't know what to do follow the suggestions.
Most hardware is detected without problems, only if you Nvidia stuff, you have to load drivers.
There should be info on the cd and something like a manual.
Off you go!
