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.

but things are not working the way they should.
following the procedure given on the website i end up having an iso file.
But as soon as i try to use it in virtual box , it leads to error saying
FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted
tried it 3 times but no success
I believe u are asking about the image i ended up having after the whole procedure
i was trying to use the image in virtual box to test whether it works or not....
Spell out your words, please. And chances are it's a problem with how you burned the CD/DVD. Did you burn it as an ISO image, or just copy the ISO to the disc? Or did you burn it to a disc, and if not (as corp769 asked), how are you trying to boot from the ISO?
Files with a bootable flag? That is totally new to me and was never necessary when I used Virtualbox.
@#root: Open the settings menu of your VM, change to the "System" tab and make sure that the CD/DVD-ROM option in the boot order is checked. It may be necessary to also make sure that is in before the harddisk in the boot order in case that the harddisk contains already an OS.
