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.

Ok, I was bragging the other day about how I had gotten Puppy 1.0.8 to boot sucessfully on my 64mb Dell Inspiron. It rans really well and looks great.
So...I went ahead and started to install it. I partitioned the drive hda1 primary linux and gave it 300mb Hda 2 I made the primary linux/swap partition and pretty much gave it the rest of my 4MB's. I started to install and got to step 3 or 4 I think and the program came back and said that I had mounted the drive that I was trying to install on, it asked me if I would like to change that and I did thinking I would get it installed and go back latteer and change things around...
Long story short, the Live CD won't boot period, I go hrough all the original set-up otions, it stops and tells me that it can;t mount any drives, then I keep going and video doesn;t work at all.
How do I go in an wipe my hard drive to nothing, repartition and then install and should I burn another copy of the Live CD, I think it might have toasted itself during my failed install???
Heeeelp. I have Dawm Small running and installed but it's not nearly as Jazzy as the Pup.
