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 am a newbie installing Slackware 12.0 on an old Dell latitude cpi laptop... I got past the partitioning of my hard drive ... my problem is at the "Source Media Selection" .... I choose "Install from a Slackware CD" but when it scans for my CD drive containing the CD it can't find it!
I don't understand why it can't find the CD drive since I'm using the CD to run the very setup program that can't find the CD drive...
Should I boot a different kernel than the default one at the boot prompt?
You failed to mention, is this CD drive an internal one, one connected via usb, pcmcia or parallel??
give a few more details, and we can probably track down the issue for you.
Sorry I didn't give you more info... its one of those CD drives that you can you can slide into a slot in the laptop... I don't know if that's considered internal or pcmcia or something... it looks like this <a url="http://notebook-components.net/uploads1/products/img3/182141_1157154141.jpg"></a>
