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.

Installed FC8. It will not Find my Floppy Drive. Does anyone know why this happens with the FC8. Did the Live CD install, all else went fine = DVD. I open computer icon to find all drives except my floppy. Is not there!
Someone who still owns a Floppy...neat! Uhmm...is your floppy drive plugged in, cable connected, etc?
Thanks to you all for your prompt response to my problem. It will be a little while before I can get to it. My medical needs have to come first (broken spine). Soon as I can sit up long enough to play with it I will do so. You people are great, thanks again to you all.
I had this problem with FC5. It was there when the system was first installed, then after the first update, it was gone never to come back. I think it's a gnome problem. Just mount it manually or put it in the fstab and then it will probably appear twice.
