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 do not have a working install of linux. i am tryiing to install on a 80 gig drive, 40 is windows xp,
I can get it to go through the install.. I get there Error above, but it will continue through the rest of the install.. it gets to end and asks me to insert a disk with the kernal.. i try to and nothing happens.. only a blinking cursor. This is far as i have gotten... i am not sure what to do next
oh, and thank you for Welcoming. .. though i think you have responed to other posts i have had...
Are you loading the kernel off a floppy or the slackware CD? If you're using a floppy, use the CD instead, and use the bare.i kernel. When you get the choice of where to install the kernel from, choose CD, and then bare.i from the list that follows.
The kernel source package is not the kernel binary that you actually use to run your system, it is the source code that you use to recompile a kernel later.
