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.

I only paid $40.00 each at staples, but now I need to know how to hook them up, my main board controller on my sony vaio only has one plug, I have a sata/150 pci card thtat I can plug into a pci slot, but how to get suse 9.3 to recogonize it is beyond me.
Then your SATA card is of no use, take it back and swap it for a joystick or Donkey Kong. Most PCs have only 4 spots for IDE disks without an extra controller, since it seems you already have 2 disks and I'm assuming you have a DVDROM or CDROM on another channel then you have one remaining. Feel free to donate the spare drive to charity. Or go buy a RAID controller and setup a RAID-1 and halve your space!
Is the sata 150 pci card not a controller, it was bundeled with a maxtor drive last year for those pepople that ran out of space, and needed more space, you plug it into your pci slot, and plug in a standard ide cable and either plug in 1 or 2 ide drives to it.
If i'ts some other controller that I need feel free to let me know.
If you can plug IDE drives into the SATA controller (psssst, that's what the card is) then that should work. I don't know to comment. You need to find out what model the SATA controller is so we can help you find out how to make it work in linux.
Can someone give me a example of LVM, assuming two 200gb hard drives hooked up to the motherboard, and one 200GB drive hooked up to the ide pci controller, it keep tellin me I must have lone linux native of xxxxx on one drive, I do that and make a linux native boot drive, and it just repeats itself.
