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 followed the instructions on how to build a bootable USB key drive with Clonezilla, but for some reason, the computer gets stuck at boot-time: "SYSLINUX 4.05... *".
Here's what I tried:
1. On Windows, quick formated in FAT32
2. Downloaded clonezilla-live-20120127-oneiric.zip, and unzipped whole ZIP onto key
3. Ran utils\win32\makeboot.bat
4. Booted PC: Stuck at "SYSLINUX 4.05... *". Hit Enter, nothing. Waited a few minutes, nothing.
5. Back on host, ran "syslinux -sfmar G:"
6. Booted PC: Same error.
7. Back on host, downloaded clonezilla-live-20120127-oneiric.iso
8. Quick formated in FAT32
9. Ran Universal-USB-Installer-188.8.131.52.exe to install ISO onto USB key
10. Booted PC: Same error.
Thanks for the tips, but this very USB key worked fine to boot that very laptop before I reused that keydrive to try a different live distro. I was just trying to put Clonezilla back on the drive. So it's most likely not a hardware issue. Very strange :-/
