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'm new to Linux, and I decided to install Madrake 9.2, but I am having serious problems with the installation program. I checked my isos and they seem fine, so I'm not sure what to do. The error message i get everytime is cannot load "program into ramdisk", then it crashes. Any idea what causes it? Or how to fix it? Thanks for your help in advance.
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
are you trying to dual boot this, or just a clean install. also did you run memtest, if xp is running on the box i'd suspect it's not a memory problem. is the harddrive scsi or ide, or possibly sata? i suspect that pnp os is not set to no since you're running xp. just throwing out some ideas. i'm going to look up your mobo for chipsets, etc.
