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.

When you "open" the cd and look at it in windows, what do you see? Do you see a .iso file? If so you burned it incorrectly. You need to burn the iso as an image and not as a file. If you look at the cd and you see files and sub directories, you have probably burned it correctly.
i dont have the software to burn something as an image at the moment, but i did get a prog called VCdControlTool which let me get into the iso file. I took the info from the iso and burned straight to cd .. and i got an error message on boot .. "media cable unplugged, check cable"
ok this is all workin nice ... except ...when i restart my comp. linux aparently gets wiped or something.. i have to type install at the boot menu again to get it to do anything... then anything that i done in linux before is gone.. HELP?!?
PS This is the first time i have dealt with a "live cd"
you must install linux to your machine to make your changes permanent.. since you are using a live cd the changes are only written to primary memory (not hard disk) and when you reboot it will be gone..
when you boot into the live cd do you get any option for installing the linux or may be there is some icon on your linux desktop to start the installer..sorry i am not familiar with its installation since i havnt used pclinuxos..
