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 a problem with kickstart.Could you land me a hand ?
i want to install redhat 9.0 in one of my partitions in my disk and leave others intact. And my problem is I don't know how to config my partitions. One of my partition is formated into ext3 and one is formated swap. i want to install rh 9.0 on the ext3 partition.
So i write in ks.cfg with these sentenses
part / --fstype ext3 --onpart hda6
part swap --onpart hda5
part /D --fstype vfat --noformat --onpart hda7
i don't know whether it is right. i copy it from the kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.
And my partitions is as follows:
/dev/hda1 4996M ntfs
/dev/had5 517M swap
/dev/hda6 4730M ext3
/dev/hda7 7797M vfat
/dev/hda8 10126M vfat
/dev/hda9 10001M vfat
Tnen i reboot and set the floppy as the first device, but i get the following error in the screen after i type "linux ks " when boot.
Boot failed: please change disk and press a key to continue.
