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.

Hi, I have been trying to install openSUSE 10.3 from a DVD and keep hitting the same problem towards the end of the install.
The installation progresses to where the main install is complete then a prompt appears saying system will reboot - stop - ok then it starts counting down. The system then reboots but goes straight back to the installation screen for the install dvd.
I apologise if this is a silly issue but I am starting to loose patience.
I think there are a number of options on the Suse DVD, install to hard drive, boot from first hard drive, etc but there should be boot from first hard drive.
Probably what is happening is that after the system has loaded it is using the first option, install to disk. Make sure that you choose boot from hard drive and installation should continue.
Its a while since I installed Suse 10.3 but think I had the same initial problem, so hope that helps.
Distribution: Mandriva 2009 X86_64 suse 11.3 X86_64 Centos X86_64 Debian X86_64 Linux MInt 86_64 OS X
RAM 256 MB is for opensuse 10.3 minimum , it should already during installation gives the warning that Add ons should be done
after installation 40 GB is more than enough . After the initial reboot yes choice reboot from local drive or HD . I can not remember exactly what the option is named. If suse do not come with this option the installation did not goes well , because
after this she write down suse config
