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.

Well, I have an already made GRUB boot disk but I am not familiar with
disk manipulation so I don't know how can I send the disk to you.
I created the disk using the following commands:
(quoted from GRUB documentation)
# cd /usr/share/grub/i386-pc
# dd if=stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
# dd if=stage2 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1
153+1 records in
153+1 records out
Can I just copy an image from a floppy and write it into the others to make
copies of it, like the way I make ISO images from CDROM? If so, what
utilities should I use? And how?
Btw, I've tried to mount the floppy but it requires me to specify a filesystem.
But I don't know which filesystem the disk is made of. Is there a way to easily
check the filesystem of a device in Linux?
The readme describes them.
When you write one to a disk with rawrite and boot it you'll get a prompt. In the prompt type:
mount root=/dev/<yourredhatpartition> ro
For Red Hat you may have to add some extra parameters
