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.

After what looks like a successful installation of CentOS 5.0 (from installation disks) on a HP DL360 G4 server, the server does not start the operating system. It says it will boot from harddisk, but the only thing it returns is a flashing cursor.
I checked the filesystem with "Linux Rescue", and to me all files seem to be in place.
I also tried to reinstall the server with the latest HP Smartstart cd, but i was only able to choose from W2003 or W2008. No Linux available.
I have very little experience in troubleshooting linux, so any help will be appreciated.
Alternatively Raid maybe on and might need to be switched off, where I work we have a couple of hundred HP servers, I think it's the ML350 G5s and the entire lot came with raid cards that have zero linux support (no drivers or anything anywhere). Infact only certain versions of windows work on them. Just something that might be worth checking out also.
