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.

ive been trying to install slackware linux 9 on my old machine... so far ive had alot of problems with getting it to read my cdrom,,,, so i had the idea of just installing the base linux packages by floppy,,, however i have not been able to find any documentation of how to make the A series disk sets,,, if anyone has an idea of how to make the disk sets or access my cdrom please let me know.
A quick check of the slackware site shows that the sbpcd.i boot disk is probably the best bet to get your CDROM working. This is an old school 40 pin non-ide interface that Teac and some other manufacturers were using way back in the day.
Thanks sooooo much for looking that up for me,,, i guess its been sitting there under my nose the whole time and i must have skipped over that boot disk when i read it. however,,,,,,, where can i get it??? ive looked all over a couple of the ftp sites and not been able to find that boot disk..... i sent an email to slackware support so i hope they or someone here can help me.
