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.

Hi, I just replaced my old mother board ABIT KA-7 with a new one MKA1223F from computer geeks.com which they said is linux compatible. When I boot up everything looks fine until after running the ramdisk check which reads [i] RAMDISK: Compressed Image found at blcok 0. The following are the lines that indicate a problem:
When booting with RedHat 7.2 CDROM crc errorFreeing initrd memory: 2046k freed
EXT2-fs: unable to read superblock
cramfs: wrong magic
isofs_read_super:bread failed, dev=09:02, iso_blknum=16, block=32
kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 09:02
when booting the redhat 7.2 system installed on the HD crc errorFreeing initrd memory: 325k freed
EXT2-fs warning: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem).
Freeing unused kernel memory: 240k freed
Warning: unable to open initial console.
Kernel panic: no init found. try passing init= option to kernel.
I can't pass any options or fsck anything because I don't get a prompt even booting from a floppy or CD. How can I fix this. I'm assuming the problem is with the Harddrive and that my MoBo is not the issue. Is that correct?
