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 posted this earlier but think I posted it in the wrong spot...Ok so im a total noob. But when i try to install fedora core 3, i press enter on the main screen to install using the GUI. on the next screen it jams ever time at line, "Using hpet for high-res timesource." Does anybody know what to do, or what this is?
do you care to explain some more, and would you by chance know for a RAID card, particularly RocketRAID 2220, how to get linux drivers on a disk. The manual tells me to run rawrite.exe on a windows computer, and that rawrite.exe should be on the linux cd. well, ive dl'd 3 versions and had 1 version mailed as a dvd, and neither of them have a file /dosutils on them, which is where it tells me to look for it? so i dl'd rawrite for windows (googled rawrite), but i can only put it on a floppy thru that program, and the drivers are atleast 5.5 MB so they wont fit. any ideas?
As I said, I don't know Fedora, but I'd be *mighty* surprised if there wasn't an F2, F3 and/or F4 option at the initial prompt to give you the available options.
Likewise, last time I did a Redhat install (RH9), that directory existed. RAWRITE is used to write an .img file to the floppy, and you can boot that to do an install - or drivers presumably.
Others will have to help there.
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
