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 have a motherboard which is not detecting SATA type drives for fedora6 and somehow I have to use fedora 6.
To make is work while installing I passed “all-generic-ide pci=nommconf” and it installed, I updated the same to the grub.conf. It installed perfectly but it’s not rebooting even though the grub menu shows “all-generic-ide pci-nommconf” parameters.
If I run a rescue disk and in the option prompt if I type “linux all-generis-ide rescue” it works and shows all partitions as hdg1 and hdg2. I checked and my fstab is also aligned to hdg1 and hdg2.
Every things looks fine but I don’t know why the option all-generic-ide is not working if given in grub/menu.
Note: I tried all other options too in grub like acpi=off, pci=bios, pci=nomsi, pci=direct, pci=nobios, noapci nolapci etc etc though if it is installed with just “all-generic-ide pci=nommconf” it should boot also.
Or use VirtualBox / VMPlayer ... but realistically: how
long do you think you're going to carry your FC6 based development
forth into future generations of hardware? Choosing a volatile
distro like Fedora (or the "normal" *buntus) as the standard
development platform seems a brain-dead decision to me, and the
sooner you migrate of it, the better.
