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 a P-4 computer. I'm running Win Me (which I DON'T like) and want to install mandrake 9.0. I have tried to install but nothing happens. I have a 40 gig Hard drive and 512 MB memory, so I have plenty of power and space to have both O.S. on at same time. Someone please guide me through the install process!
PS I also, have Partition magic 7.0 in case I need to have a seperate partiton made.
Thanks all! Dutch, thanks for the tip regarding my CD-Rom being the boot drive!! That was the solution to my problem of not being able to install! Ok, here's another question-now that I have the O.S. pretty much installed (I'm to the point where Linus wants to configure my internet access), how do I get my netzero ISP installed and running? Forgive my ignorance regarding Linus but I have been a Windows user for years and a lot of this is new to me! Any help would be great!!
When you get to the point in the installation for configuring internet access, make sure your modem/whatever is recognised and then enter the name, phone number etc for your ISP. If you're stuck you can continue the installation without configuring the connection at this point, and configure through Control Centre later on, at your leisure.
Hi all, 1/21/03
I loaded Mandrake 9.0 onto my back up computer. I have a Motorola 56K modem (PCI) that I want to configure. The drivers are all windows based thus my computer won't accept the drivers from the CD. I also have Netzero as my ISP (setup software is on a floppy disk)and want to install the software. I need advice as I'm a newbie to the Linux OS. Thanks much!
