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 need to be able to use the old debug.exe in dos, but i don't have dos/windows/etc installed on my system.
i don't want to put windows or old dos on my system since it'll allow other people to have weird access to my files that i can't allow.
i know of dosbox, have it installed. but the debug.exe from my old start up disks, when launched on dosbox, will tell me incorrect version of ms-dos.
assuming this is true. i can change the reported version using the ver command (ver set 6) and it'll then say ms-dos 6.0
the problem is that i've tried to set a lot of versions and so on, and still no luck. and i have no idea how to check what version the program needs.
since all this needs to be run on linux somehow. it would be nice if i had a program like dosbox (maybe that *is* what i need, somebody will have to tell me).. uhh the idea is that i wont be able to use the linux kernel for interrupts, i'd have to use windows or dos or whatever. so i'd need to emulate that somehow, since the interrupt requests are mostly all diff, an no good to put assembly from dos to linux etc...
anyway, i'm at a loss and i've been searching around for a few days trying to find something. this is for school, and they'll be using windows xp or vista or something horrible. we'll be using ms-dos (version?? i dono) and the old debug.exe
i'm looking for debug.exe type of program that will work on linux/unix/etc, that actually does all the things (or close to it ofcourse) to the dos debug one.
need it for x86 intel type cpu's
and.. would be good if it wasn't the at&t %syntax %thingy
then we'll be moving to nasm or masm or whatever.. ..yasm..
i have them all installed for the linux versions of them, none for dos/windows
i've started to learn how to do assembly on linux on my own, and i'm trying to re-do what i didn't quite learn the first time for dos assembly...
