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'm about to burn Mandrake DVD install ISO with K3b to take the distro for a test drive. I have never burned with this software. I usually download an ISO in Linux placing it on a vfat partition. I then boot XP and use Roxio to burn . In Roxio I simply right click the ISO and Roxio takes it from there.
Well I can't do that this time because vfat doesn't support files over 2GIG and Mandrake's DVD is slightly more than 2GIG. I didn't realize the ISO was actually more than 2GIG and downloaded in Linux placing on an ext3 partition. The only way out now is to burn in Linux.
I remember a while back trying to burn a Linux installation ISO in Linux. It burned the whole ISO, not making a bootable installation disc. In other words, it just copied the ISO. It didn't break it down.
Will K3b do the same thing? How do I get it to create an install disc and not simply copy the ISO?
Or is the a better burner I should be using?
Hmmm...how about burning and creating install disc using the command line? Is that possible? What are the commands?

Ok that simple!! I guess I should have looked at the options available before asking! Well I'm at work now and will give it a try when I get home. If all goes well I probably will never see Roxio again!
