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.

Depending on the distro you are using, there is normally either a separate boot-floppy image you can dowload or you can get one off of the install cd and use the DOS RAWRITE utility to make a boot floppy.
Well, I have boot floppies, and can always created one if I
wanted. However, once you boot from a floppy, how do you start
installation? Is there any program that one needs to execute?
Also, using a boot floppy, it is possible to install FreeBSD?
I am having sort of the same problem. I am using the Device Dump to create a boot disk to kick start my Slackware install at the setup prompt when I boot the floppy it says loading the kernel then i get the ........................... then says loading failure insert another boot disk. I don't know if thos are exact words but it is to that sort.
any suggestions? I am at the slackware site now so hopefully I will find something.
