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 just had a quick question. I have been playing around with many of the Linux Live CDs as of late. I noticed that not all of them have an option to install the OS to the HD and run it from there. I was wondering if there was a way to install a Linux Live CD to a HD if there is no option built-in.
The one in particular that I have been looking at is called Caster - the ultimate streaming livecd. I downloaded the ISO and burned it, but haven't popped it in yet. I just want to know if I do like it, and it doesn't offer a Install to HD option, that I could still do it some other way. I just think I would prefer to run it off the HD in the end if I like it.
Thanks in advance for any help!!
P.S. - I would have posted a link, but I guess until I have made 5 posts I am prohibited from doing so. I didn't want to make a bunch of BS posts on other people's threads just to get my first 5. So if you want a link to the Caster website just email me or PM me.
Just left the author a message, and will hopefully hear something back soon. I will be sure to post any communication I receive. If anyone else has any other thoughts and ideas please pass them on. Thanks again!!!
No reply yet from the author, but here is what i have found on my own.
I popped the CD in, and I am impressed. I love the simple interface and how everything is organized in the menus. I haven't actually tried the streaming media part yet, but I will try to soon.
I don't see an option to install to the Hard Drive, so hopefully the author will have some info for me.
Overall I like what I see so far and would really like to explore installing Caster as an OS on the hard drive instead of just a LiveCD. If anyone else has any ideas or suggestions please pass them along. Thanks again!
P.S. - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (forgot that in my first post )
