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 am a newbie in linux; I am trying to instal suse 8.2 on my new system but the harddisk was not found. The hard disk was prepared with partitionmagic 7.0. I have anew system with a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus9 (S-ata) How can i solve this problem.
The first thing that springs to mind is that the HDD might not be connected properly - is it detected by the BIOS? Sorry if this is too elementary but hit the Delete key as your system boots and have a look in the relevant BIOS section to see if your HDD is there. Is it the only HDD on the system or is it a second HDD?
How exactly are you installing SuSE? I did the same thing with XP and PM 7 (ish) on a laptop the other day (errr...weeks months ago!) - sorry to ask such an elementary question. It's just the way my mind works. I'd hate to miss the obvious - even thought the obvious is never obvious really.
Sorry I can't help much, but as Esteeven said above, it's mostly a hardware problem. I bought SuSE 8.2 and installed it on both my computers. Detection went quite smoothly, although sometimes you do have to tell SuSE about your hardware.
