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.

First post, yes I'm a noob, and I'm only an idiot if you consider not taking advice the first time to be stupid.
I've got a bit of a pet project going in my computer class. I'm the TA and already know java, the course topic, so what I do is play around with computers and help the newbies in the class out. From time to time I grade papers or find myself "fixing" computers. We run windows in the lab and as I said I have a pet project, which is to install linux on one or two of the computers in the lab.
To make a long story short, I'm trying to install slackware and install lilo to the MBR. I got frustrated with some things, decided to start over, things were typed, and regrets made. In the end I typed something to delete the MBR, and I've reformatted a couple of times since, but LILO will no longer install. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this from scratch? I mean starting entirely over.
note: I need to do this without networking. I can burn any necessary cd's but no networking for me until I get a computer running.
