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 finished installing MDK 9.2 and upon rebooting, choosing Linux I get "local host id . I put in my isp user name and password but it says incorrect password. I didn't see this step in the installation book. What does it want me input? Thanks. Typed in my linux user name and password and got this [***@localhost***]$ and that's all.
You should be able to put in the #1 CD and boot to it. It should ask, after a few steps, if you want to upgrade or install. Choose upgrade then walk through it. I'm not sure it will give you the chance to add software but I think it gives you the chance to configure.
You could also just chose to install and use the same partitions you used before. When it asks you what packages, make sure to select the GUI stuff.
I went back and reinstalled. Missed a bunch of stuff. Had to go with KDE as Gnome wasn't in the drop down box. I am guardedly pleased!!! Oh, how do you close tabs on Konquerer? Thanks for everyone's input. raysr
You can go into the start thingy then Configuration then Packaging then Install software. You can then select Gnome and install it too. If you don't have all the CDs, you may not have the option. I can't remember which CD it is on.
