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 can't seem to get OpenSuse (10.3 nor 11.0) to install on MS Virtual PC 2007. The virtual CD boots, I get the cool green screen asking what I want to do. I tell it to install, it does its thing for a second and then the virtual screen goes black and I get nothing.
I have check the ISO file and MD5 checks out correctly. I have tried reducing the RAM down to under 512 megs and i get the same thing.
I was reading that it may have something to do with the 24 bit color on the install and that VPC doesn't support it. Can someone tell me how to lower the bit rate on the install? I can put in "boot options" but don't know the correct commands.
Anyone else have any luck installing 11.0 on VPC 2007?
Distribution: RHEL 4/5, Fedora 6-9, SuSE 10.1-11, Open Solaris 10.8, WinXP,2003,Vista
What I was trying to say was that VPC2007 is a Microsoft product geared for Microsoft hosts and Microsoft guest operating systems. VPC is not too tolerant of other operating systems; therefore, you may not be able to reliably run any version of Linux within a VPC2007 virtual machine.
If you want to run guests such as Linux, UNIX, BSD, etc within a Windows host, you may be forced to use either VMWare or Virtual Box.
For more information relating to VPC2007, go to the source to get good and accurate information.
You need to download virtual CD/DVD software so that you can capture the ISO of Suse. I'm using Daemon Tools Lite 4.30.1, you can download it for free from their web site
After you installed and setup Damon Tools mount the ISO of Suse in the drive, that way instead of capturing the image through MSVPC 2007 you already have the image in say E drive. When you load MSVPC select the drive were you mounted the image and your all set.
I had the same exact problem you are havin, I pretty sure the problem is that MS Virtual PC only supports CD images and DVD images... could be wrong.
