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 would like to ask those of you who are a bit experimented in linux
i know this question has been already asked (crc error)
but i have tried every possible solution provided with no result
so i prefer explaining how i am getting this error
i have installed linux smoothwall express 2.0 on a pentium 1 to create a home connection sharing with wireless
since the pentium 1 does not boot from cd and the floppy was damaged,
i was able to install smoothwall on my 2 gig quantum harddrive from a pentium 4
then configuring the server on my pentium 1 by moving the harddrive to it
everything worked so far, i was able to use my server machine for almost 2 weeks.
then this harddrive died (god knows how), and since i had a spare...... i decided to use that spare one
i did the steps again and was able to boot from pentium 4 with no problems
but when i insert the drive to the pentium 1
i get this error
-- system halted
every time i boot the pentium 1
if i move that same disk to the pentium 4
i get no problems what so ever
yes i have tried on 2 other drives and still have the same problem
like i said before
when i connect the drive to the pentium 4 i encountered no problems
only when i connect it to the pentium 1
i am suspecting a hardware problem: RAM
but since it worked before i really don't know the connection
pentium 4 has 256 ram
pentium 1 has 64 megs of ram
