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.

:^P Actually, the 150 Trig problems was an "easy" night. Tonight's was 234 problems. (Only 50? Want to trade teachers?) We do a weeks worth of work everyday. (Summer classes, we are trying to knock out 2 books in 6 4-day weeks. It usually takes 16 5-day weeks.) Feels like I barely have time to breathe.
Glad somebody else was able to benfit from this thread! Perhaps others will as well.
The Red Hat Support tech said that the command did exactly what it looks like it does. (I think he is just tired of hearing from me.) ;^) Now I can't get RH to recognize my 120GB FAT32 drive that I was using for sharing files between OSes (its running off of a PCI to ATA adapter card along with a NTFS drive and a zip drive). It also doesn't recognize my firewire DVD-RAM drive or my USB external hard drive and won't let me into my roommate's Win2000 computer. The same installation on my laptop is going just as well. Without any warning it powered off on me in the middle of installing CodeWeaver's Crossover plugin. (The battery was dead since the batstat shows that I don't even have a battery in it.) Had it working in Mandrake 9.1, but didn't make any notes for myself. DUUHHHHH! I'm not complaining though, playing with my computers is my "break" from homework.
So as you may be able to tell, getting it to install was just the first part of the battle it would seem. Oh well, Rome wasn't built in a day.
Oh well, got to be up in 5 hours and still have 3 more problems to do.
