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.

Hey, I recently downloaded the 64 bit version of SUSE 9.0 from an FTP. The whole 7.4 gigs of it. I burned the BOOT.ISO image to a CD. I have no problem booting into the main menu of the SUSE install where you can choose "Boot from hard drive, INSTALL, INSTALL NO ACPI, and INSTALL SAFE" and so on. Whenever I install, though, the installation hangs up just after i recieve the message "<<SUSe Linux installation". The system just hangs. I tried installing on another machine but recieved the error that i should get a 32 bit version; i only have one 64 bit machine. I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and knows how to get past it. I heard that the installation locks up at times from hardware incompatibitly...so far I've tried a different video card with no luck. Also, I've tried a boot.iso from the regular I386 version; just to see...still no luck.
Here are my specs
AMD Athlon 64 3000+
MSI K8T800 Neo mobo
Onboard Realtek LAN
Onboard Realtek AUDIO
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro
512mb Corsair PC400 RAM
Alt. OS - Win XP Pro
