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.

Im trying to install a linux system via network(nfs/ftp) on VMware .
Im using RHEL 5.
my client system is able to access the installation &
set its own hostname from server .
Problem is that after disk druid (& after asking me to enable swap space),
it says "Execption Occured" & gives me option to save locally or on remote system or debug.
It was related to yum So i disabled yum on ma server.
But it gives me same error
Here is a part of it:
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 415, in doGroupSetup
raise Errors.GroupsError, 'No Groups Available in any repository'
