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.

Hi I am new to Linux but I think this might help. I have suse10 and I used the "jem report" to add mirrors, now my suse upgrades from these and I never need the cd's look for the jem report on line and it tells you how to add these mirrors and disable the cd sourse. its quite easy to do. Please run this by one of the experts first to be sure but I think it will work for you. Adrian
Ask one of the techy guys first they will let you know how. good luck, Adrian
Also I have Mandrake 10.1 although I have never installed it and it has 4 CD's perhaps you are short of one or its differnt when you download it.

Ok, you need to use Mandriva's packaging tool to add a new removable resource. Basically, open up "Mandriva Control Centre", go to "Software", and then to "Manage Resources" (or something) - it's the one that isn't Install or Remove.
Once in there, it should list your 3 CDs and maybe an Internet "Security Updates" repository. You need to add a new "removable media" repository that points to the "CD4" directory on the third CD. If you can "clone" the CD3 entry and then edit it, then so much the better.
