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.

This is my first time installing Linux on a machine. I am installing Red Hat 9. The machine is an old Gateway AMD K6 366mhz; and I believe 128mb. I have downloaded all the files necessary for installation (Shrike-i386-disc1, Shrike-i386-disc2, and Shrike-i386-disc3).
The previous operating system on the machine was Win98, which i reformatted. I insert the first disc into the machine, switch the BIOS to boot from the CD ROM. The Red Hat 9 page comes up, starts the boot process. The installation seems to be going fine, it asks me for language, keyboard, and what device I will be installing from. I tell it that I will install from the CD ROM. After that, this error occurs "The Red Hat Linux CD was not Found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Red Hat Linux CD and press ok to retry.
I continue by trying to eject and reinsert the CD. But the CD ROM drive will not open. I have forced it to open and reshut the drive, the same error message occurs.
I have made a boot disk, and I get the same result.
Have you tried selecting the device then? I know that with my slackware 8.1 cd it would read from my dvd rom if there was a cd in there even tho my cdrom is master, then tell me it couldnt find the slackware cd.
