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 have downloaded the shrike-i386 ISO files fresh from the redhat website. I burned the files onto the appropriate cd's using the windows built in burner ( just copying the file ). I changed my BIOS to boot from cd first and I KNOW that it works because i just installed xp pro on this machine. Either way, I would like to know why the Install program does not autorun, or run at all for that matter.
384 megs RAMBUS
Gforce 4 TI 4600
80gig HD [ first partition is 6 gigs for xp ( using rest of the first 1024 cylinders for linux, or 4 gigs roughly )
partitions are set up: ( in gigs )
6 ntfs (xp pro)
10 unformatted ( for linux i hope)
rest is still raw, i will probly make one 10gig sector for etc3 and the rest ntfs.
i don't think you can burn iso images onto cd's with the built in windows burner. may look in help file. the iso is an image of the disk. when burnt onto cd you should see the folders and files that were made into the iso. meaning you should see directories like RedHat, dosutils, etc.
this i found on another forum. an iso is sort of like a zip file. it doesn't compress though, as far as i know. it just packs everything into one file, so that you don't have to download each file individually. like zip is to put multiple files into one file for easy transfer of multiple files via email, etc.
