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.

Simply one of the newer processors. i386 (I believe is an early pentium), i486, 586 later models. And an i686 is more recent. This also covers Athlons - I have had a year old Athlon come up as an i686.

Why? Is this for a project?
Nope this is not for a project. Evil Entity Linux needs a minimum of i686. What processor speed would this be at the minimum ? Thanks.
If it is a Pentium or Celeron processor a 333mhz is an i686. If it is a AMD K6II it is not a full i686 processor by linux standards. Intel 686 processors (Pentium II and above) are above 233mhz. AMD 686 processors (Athlon or Duron) are above 600mhz. So you have to find out if you have an Intel (PII) 333 or an AMD (K6II) 333mhz. If it`s a AMD it won`t work.
