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.

I am trying Parallels, because bootcamp wont work well with my copy of windows even if I slip stream sp2. Having said that I would most like to just do a clean install of redhat shrike, and not dual boot, but I am not sure how that would work. I have a new mac book, intel core duo1.83, 1 gig of ram, 60G hard drive. I would also be ok with it running on Parallels. I am a computer networking student trying to study for my cert in linux LPI, and have had an intro to linux class, but I am new to mac. I have done labs in shell awhile ago but no expert.
I don't understand how this iso stuff works. I have no experience with mac and am having trouble figuring out what and how to download red hat 9. For some reason a lot of the sites on here I can't open in safari or in firefox. I have never download and OS or a file this large before over the net.
I found tutorials on here that tell how to burn to a cd, but now how to download, maybe I am missing something.
I apologize for being very green at this, But I promise to share what I learn.

Distribution: Distribution: RHEL 5 with Pieces of this and that.
Kernel 188.8.131.52, KDE 3.5.8 and KDE 4.0 beta, Plu
First if Redhat 9 is not a requirement you would be better off with Fedora Core 4 or 5. It is a redhat clone distro that is uptodate. Redhat 9 is over 3 years old by now I guess. Using 2.4 kernels and other older software. Fedora 4 or 5 is using 2.6 kernels and would be able to work with most apps without much extra.
Also you may wish to try Mandriva or Suse. Both are great as well.
Now an ISO is an image of a CD or DVD. Using a cd burning tool just burn the image to a cd, don't copy the image just use the option to burn image.
As far as mac goes I am not a mac user and not sure about which distros are mac or ppc compliant or if they require special versions. Just a PC user.
