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 installed the vmware in linux and then i did what the documentation was saying for installing win xp in raw disks as guest os and read how to solve the problem for ACPI . I did exactly what the pdf was saying.Then i run wmvare and then a blue screen i the emulator show up and a window saying that the guest operating system has shutdown the processor and in the blue screen in vmware there was some addresses.I cannont understand what i am doing wrong.My kernel supports the vm..mon module .Please reply to this thread.
I create to hardware profiles mpla mpla mpla ....
but the f.. thing doesn't work.!
Thanks for taking time to read my post.One last question:
After the installation of service pack 1 in XP i should change the things i did to setup vmware and the things to overcome the ACPI problem.I will download the service pack now .Please reply as soon as possible.
Ok i have a patch of linux kernell 2.4.20 i tried the command patch.The in the directory /lib/modules i found a new directory called 2.4.2.-4G which was not like the others.There was no build in in and had few modules thing in it.In the other directories when i write make xconfig the usual staff comes out.No what the heck with that version of the kernel.The thing is that i have no option in my lilo menu to boot this kernel.I didn't have the problems u describe with /etc/fstab.i believe that the problems that i have are made from the kernel.I will try to fix them.Any suggestion is welcome.Thanks a lot mate.!
Yes ok the things with the kernel but the documentation of the vm says that in SuSE 7.1 to run the vm must have a kernel that don't support the non PAE versions of the kernel in linux cd's.I bought the original cd of SuSE 7.1 and i cannot find the kernel required .Try through yast but i cannot chose the correct kernel.How can i see if the kernel is PAE or non-PAE with the SMP support?
No the virtual machine is booting until the step of choosing the hardware profile (where i choose the second profile that i create called VMware)then it should start windows but instead it crushes with a blue screen and and the only thing that i recognize is that it tells to run CHDSK and some faults in the memory,then rebooting the vm.I cannot install the VMtools because the windows don't start at all.Now i want to patch the kernel in 2.4.0.Will i have a problem ?
I don't think updating the kernel will be a problem
I tried vmware on my slack box and it worked fine
I booted into lilo and ran winme
I also have dos 6.22 and win3.1 running on mandrake 9.0
I did see a problem with XP booting. I ended up reseting the vmware bios to defaults, that fixed it. make sure it's not trying to go to fullscreen before you get everything setup right.
XP seemed to be very slow and the screen was very chopped up before installing the vmtools and service packs
You might want to check the memory settings and drive space. I am using undoable virtual disks, there may be some difference in the way it handles physical disks. I have not tried to install to a physical disk. My system is not setup that way right now.
