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'm having the same kind of problem with RH9. Total newbie, but anyway...
So heres the deal, I boot with the cd, and it comes up giving me the graphic v text choice, I've done each, and both times I've gotten messages that confused me...
Before a bunch of number codes fill the screen it says "Unable to handle kernal paging request at virtual address C0000000" and then the gibberish and then "<0>Kernal panic! Attempted to kill the idle task. In idle task- not syncing"
So basically what I need to know is what I should do......
A couple of years ago i bought an offbrand computer from fry's electronics, (cause it was cheap and I had/have no money) so I'll try and figure it all out....
Processor:800MHZ something... I'd have to reboot to see and i don't feel like it
HD: IDE 20 gig (WDC WD200EB-00CSF0)

cd-roms: ATAPI CD-R/RW 24X10 and OEM CD-ROM F563E
If you guys can think of info I can give you then I can try and find it...
That error could come from a few places, but it's hard to say exactly where. Here are a few things you might want to try:
1. Test your memory; you might have a dodgy stick of RAM. memtest86 is one utility you can use to do this.
2. Open your case and reseat all PCI cards, RAM sticks, hard drive connectors, etc.
3. On Redhat's support site, either the RH 9.0 User's Manual or Customization Guide has a list of boot options (in the appendix) that can use during the installation to bypass certain problems. Have a look at those.
