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.

Does your computer support bootable CDs? Most computers these days do... but sometimes you have to go into the bios and tell it to boot off a CD, or change the boot order so it'll try and boot off a CD.
When you turn on the computer it will say hit either DEL or F2 to enter the bios. You need to navigate the bios to find something about the 1st boot device or boot order or anything like that. Then make it where the cdrom is enable and set to boot before the HDD. The floppy can go where ever you like.
yes ... change the first boot device to be the CDROM ...
usually you use the pgup, pgdwn keys to change them ...
and then you can put the second boot device as A or C and the third boot device to be the opposite for what you chose for the second
