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 did search for this and was surprised not to find it, I may well be missing the point. When I installed RH9.1 during the gui install it prompts me to make a emergency boot disc in case my OS wont boot. At the time I did not want to as I was in a rush and had no floppy disc handy, but now for backup purpsoses I would like to make one. I have sanned my RH 9 OS and I cant see how to create this floppy disc could anyone give me a pointer on how to do this. Just to reitterate I am trying to create the backup boot disc in case lilo fails or becomes corrputed I am not trying to create a CD rom boot disk.
PS my RH9 install including samba server makes a terrific file server for 20 win2k users on a old low spec PC with a new HD slammed in it.
