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 obtained the 4 discs to update from fc1 to fc3. However the machine does not boot from fc3, the bios is ok beacuse I can boot from fc1.
I have read that I have to burn the discs on the machine that I intend to update.
I do not understand the md5 check method as I do not know to change to the floppy disc drive using terminal.
Can you move from fc1 to fc3 without going via fc2?
Could someone decribe a simple procedure to use the discs I have created.
Technically, your disc one should be bootable and you should have no trouble booting and updating. Since you don't understand the md5sum procedure, can you use the "disc check" function native to Fedora? I'd start there..
Should I update or will I be causing myself other issues such as hardware problems, when I had a great surprise that although my isp said it did not support linux on the broaddand modem - here I am using it!
