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 got a copy of Fedora from school today and I want to give it another shot on my computer. Unfortunately, it won't install for anything. I started out partitioning it on my own, and it said that it probably didn't have enough space, so I completely reformatted my F: drive. Well it still says it when I try. I try the auto format feature and I get a massive error and it doesn't even want to start. I'm assuming it's not a problem with the cd, but it wouldn't surprise me too much if there was.
I'd like to give it another try after having zero luck last time, but I think I'm just destined to never get a copy installed right.
OK, I went through and saved all the usual errors I get. Everything's backed up, so I'm not really worried about losing anything. First Error: "An error has occurred transferring the install image to your harddrive. You are probably out of disk space."
I've got an 80 gb hard drive I'm putting this stuff on, and it's blank except for the partitions that I chose for linux. I only get this error when I manually partition it.
Second Error (I get this one when I try to use the automatic partition) is too big to post anywhere. I saved the text file from the error, though. If anyone wants it let me know and I can send it to you, but I don't know how much anyone could get from it. It's the debug log I guess.
I've got Windows XP on my first hard drive, and I'm putting this on my second hard drive, which is currently completely empty.
