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.

This is my first experience with linux. I have live cd puppy 511. It boots as far as ram then after I get this error.. Preforming a 'switch-root to the layered filesystem...kernal panic...not sync in g. attempted to kill init
My friend had an older version of puppy and it worked fine on my computer.
It is IBM thinkpad.
Has anybody any suggestions as to what could be wrong.
When you get the boot prompt in the live CD, type noapic nolapic noacpi nodma If it boots, try eliminating one at a time until it won't boot. That's the one you need. And I think you might be a lot better off with Knoppix live CD. It will boot almost anything.
