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.

Yes, I burned the ISO and without ever having done so before. Probably wrong method.
I cannot seem to find definitive instructions for doing so. Most people that explain it on the internet seem to assume that you already know what you're doing.
I used Nero Burning ROM and the downloaded files were extracted by Isobuster. I've used Nero plenty of times but never in this context. I didn't even know I had Isobuster until it offered itself for use.
All this was done in XP since I have not managed to get any of my stuff working in Linux yet.
If there's a better way I would love to know about it.
I am happy to start again from scratch rather tha try to analyse what went wrong.
If you have RedHat installed, do you have k3b? I haven't used Nero in a long time but I do remember it had the option to "burn image" or "burn ISO" I forget the exact phrase used, but I do know it's there.
If you have k3b, burn it with that selecting "Tools>CD>Burn CD image
What happens now is that it carries out a burn but to a virtual drive.
I cannot set it to burn to the CD, the 'Choose Recorder' tag only gives me a choice of Image Recorder ... Virtual Device and not the CD recorder.
This a a newer problem than the one I first had.
It seems to me that I ought not to worry you good people with this. I should be trying to get to grips with Red Hat 9 and doing the burn from there. I'm sure that you are more capable (and happier) to advise me about that if I cannot do it.
