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.

Ok, I persuaded my college's admins to download me the Mandrake 9.1 isos (they want to test it now too ), but they could not work out how to check the files against md5sums. Instead we resorted to just burning the cd-rs as it was the last (half)day of term.
When attempting to create iso images back from these cds via Nero in windows, it fails at 54%, trying to read some mandrake kernel rpm. Hopefully I can keep reading beyond this error in the disk in linux.
How do I create iso files from my cds in Linux?
How do I check those against checksums?
How can I fix any slight errors in downloads? Via 'rsync'?
You should be able to mount the iso like a regular cd or hd.
I think the command is mount -t iso9660 -o ro, loop0 mandrake.iso /cdrom
All the files in the iso should appear exactly like they would on a cd.
When your done just use the umount /cdrom command.
I just knew buying all those books would come in handy
Oh there's no need for that, Mandrake kindly automatically mounts all my drives for me by default
Note: Woohoo I got Opera to work with my paranoid cookie settings
Using X-cd-roast to try and copy the cd, I got:
My Mdk9.0 disk doesnt have them. Rpmfind.net has naff ftp links.
Hopefully I just have to download those files, make a new cd1, and check all three isos
Edit: rpm.pbone.net resulted in all 3 files, and the ftp-linux.cc.gatech.edu mirror seems to work fine.
Recorded size inconsistent compared to that reported by resumer app. The odd size is the same from a few mirrors tested...
Edit2: Nope, that mirror isnt working
