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've got a PIII on an Intel SE440BX2 MB with 256M of memory, CD, floppy, and a PNY Vanta Riva TNT2 PCI graphics card. I've been trying to do a clean install, but have the following problem.
The Ananconda install proceeds along nicely, past the initial config, disk partitioning, networking, firewall, and time zone, until it reaches and finishes authentication. Then anaconda says:
Install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
unmounting file systems...
you may safely reboot your system
The last entry in the install log was
-moving (1) to step readcomps
which seems to be indicating that it is reading the component files.
The last 4 lines in the system-related messages log are:
<6>md: raid5 personality registered as nr 4
<6>Journalled Block Device driver loaded
<6>LVM version 1.0.5+(22/07/2002) module loaded
<6>parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP(,...)]
This is my first experience with installing Linux.
