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 have downloaded iso files of suse linux. Now i want to install it but not with the common methods.
I currently have windows on my machine as well as redhat9.
I want that i get an entry in my boot loader which when selected the installation setup of suse should run and then when it will ask for location where iso files are kept i give it the path of where the files are stored on the HDD.
It is to be supposed that there is no LAN so booting thru PXE is no possible at present.
If i understand correctly, you want to do the following: copy the iso files in your HD- maybe in a folder of your redhat installation- and then when Suse installation starts, you'd like to provide the path to the iso files. You want to do the installation from a local file directory.
I beg to differ: FC4 is newer, and does have a number improvements with respect to RH9. It is however also 'experimental' in the sense that it's a development distro that is being used for testing purposes. Improvements that have been tested and found to work and be stable are then included in RH. So FC is NOT the replacement of RHL, but the testbank. Still, if you use linux for you r personal computer, and not in a company where stability is much more important, updating RHL to FC4 is a sensible move.
Well Well i m not looking for a discussion on whether i shoud use RH9 or fedora.
Yes i have the iso's copied to the HDD but i want that i should be able to run the installation setup directly from the HDD and not from any other boot media like floppy or cd or network.
I donot want to create any bootable cd or floppy.
All i want is that i should have an entry in my bootloader which should point to the suse installation startup
Which is the file that is called when the setup is to begin
Yes i checked the link and in its previous page it says u booted with pxe, or usb media
Now what i want is that i should be able to bring up the bootloader directly from the HDD rather than using some other device like usb,floppy,cdrom,network card....
