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 installed Caldera Open Linux 3.2 WorkStation in my machine. I have Windows 2000 and Win98 in my machine already..
The Installation was successful and i was able to view the KDE.
The power went off when i was working on Linux and now when i start my computer i am getting a message GRUB and then it stops..
Earlier it used to give options for selecting an OS ( Linux, Win NT and Win 98) . I am not sure whether this is a command prompt ..what ever i type i am unable to view the characters i have typed there..!
I am unable to boot from my CD ROM Drive may be because of the BIOS settings..
How to resolve this.. Is there any way to solve this with out changing the BIOS settings !!..
I changed the BIOS settings so that the primary booting is from CD ROM and reinstalled the Linux .
One good thing is I haven't lost any data..
After going through the posts here i am some what 'compelled' to go for either RedHat or Mandrake.
Which is the best Linux distribution for Desktops ?? What additional features the above mentioned distributions offer when compared to Caldera Open Linux3.2 Work station.. I am satisfied with the features they are providing...( May be i haven't seen the features provided by others!!)
