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 problem installing Ubuntu on Asus P5KR, Core2Duo 6750, two SATA HD, and two SATA DVD's! Actually DVDs are IDE, but I connected them on SATA over IDE-To-SATA adapter because my IDE cable is too short! Anyway, I tried to connect one DVD on IDE and nothing happened, still the same!
I've put the CD and start computer, select Install Ubuntu and after that my floppy started to make sounds, and on the screen says: "can't access tty, job control turned off"!
After that I tried to run Knopix 3.4 and on log screen it says there is no HD's detected!
After that I changed the BIOS option in SATA Configuration-IDE Enchanced to IDE Compatible and then Knopix 3.4 worked fine!
In the Knopix I can see only SATA 1 and SATA 2 (my first HD and DVD), but there is no SATA 3 and SATA 4 (my second HD and DVD)!
I tried everything, and still have the same!
After that I tried to instal Fedora Core 6, and at the beginning install process Fedora can't see SATA 3 and SATA 4, still the same!
Anyone knows what can be the problem here, my MB, maybe some jumper, BIOS settings, or something else! I tried few versions of Ubuntu, 6.06, 6.10, 7.04, 7.10, still the same!
Windows XP SP2 is working fine!
Look again at the second picture, there it starts to read something from a floppy, but drive is empty and then it shows that black screen on the third picture! Do I have to install some SATA drivers during the installation process maybe?!
it looks like you have a bad hard drive already... try to switch hard drives . put the one on SATA0 on SATA1 and vise versa ... why are you installing 6.06 instead of downloading 7.10 and installing that?
