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.

Hello everybody. I am trying Linux for the first time, but am having a bit of trouble installing Fedora Core 5. CD1 is ok, and I am able to initialize the installation. However, when I get to CD2, it tells me 'Thats not the correct Fedora Core CDROM'. I have downloaded the iso from Fedora's website onto my Windows XP NTFS machine. I have verified the CD with the checksum. To burn the ISO, I used Nero Burning Rom, and have tried using a low 4x speed.
I have used the following settings in Nero:
Tried both, disc-at-once and track-at-once
Data Mode 1
ISO 9660 + Joliet
Character Set ISO 9660 Standard
Anybody have any ideas before I redownload the image and waste another CD?
For BeanGo: Since you are able to boot from CD1, you obviously have not fallen into the copy-the-iso-file-to-the-CD trap...
Check you CD drive to make sure is correctly reads (or boots) some other CDs. If so, then your CD-2 may have not burned corectly. If the download checksum was OK, then all you have to do is just burn another CD.
Waste a CD? At 20-30 cents each, it's a fair bet that your time is the more critical resource.
