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.

To download it. I didnt know what to do so i have copied it all to my comp. How do i turn this into CDs.Im currently on the dreaded Windows XP system and want to somehow make these into the CDs to install it so what do i do?
You should have posted earlier.
Read the Mandrake installation manual and create the network boot floppies, then install from the FTP server directly. It usually works well (it does with other distros), especially if you have a high speed connection.
My main box is a long way from my router, and DSL line in the house, so I use wi-fi. I have a speedstream pcmcia card along with the PCI adaptor. It is supported under Mandrake 9.0 (what I run now.) is it possible to do a net install this way, or will I have to go get 60 feet of cat5 to connect it to my router the ol' fashioned way?
