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 downloaded the iso image of redhat linux 9 and burn the cd from this image. When I install it During 2nd CD I get following message.
The package XFree86-tools-4.3.0-2 cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file or perhaps a corrupt package. If you are installing from CD media this is usually mean the CD media is corrupt or CD drive is unable to read the media.
Is there any specfic way to burn linux 9 iso image. Becuase I used same procedure to burn cd as I did for linux 8, which work fine.
I've validated the check-sum. I've also ensured that the images were downloaded from the same site.
I fail on disc 2, but it complains about xpdf. In any case, if you use the disc validation routine at the beginning of the installation, it will identify disc 2 as invalid, despite the fact that the check sum is correct.
I've tried to install from my hard-drive, where the iso images are retrieved directly from my hard drive ... same problem.
I borrowed a friends purchased version of red-hat linux v9 (pink tie) ... same problem.
I'm at a total loss to explain this ... particularly since the vast majority of users have not experienced this. I initially thought that it was related to my CD drive, but when installation from my hard-drive also failed ...
I've also downloaded the images from several different sites ... still no luck!
I'm running Windows XP home edition on a DELL Dimension 8200, 1.9GHz.
are Mandrake 9.1-specific, but the tips on the BIOS settings may be worth a try. Things such as PnP OS, shadow video BIOS, etc could be causing your problem. As suggested before, you could also try having ACPI turned off in the BIOS.
Bainwohl, you are the next best thing to sliced bread! Thank you so much. Who, what, where, when, why was this problem created from? Why vmware? Did you get any answer from VMware or Redhat as to what the problem is caused by? I fear for those out there who haven't found this forum/thread on the subject.
