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.

NB I have removed the 3rd line by enabling "coolnquiet" in the BIOS
The download has the correct checksum and i've burnt at the slowest speed...
I have written to DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD RAM each one at least twice and the effect is the same ..they will not work on my other computer either . Does anyone have any ideas as to what is the problem
I have many other live Distros and they all work fine
Thanks for your reply Ace,
apparently the ISOLINUX line is correct...and the reason for the failure was that the
dvd drive (that is only 3mths old) will not read its own discs...but it is only on the 3.3 version of this distro , all other live dvd's seem to work OK.
I put in a the old drive and and everything is fine.
