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.

Red Hat 9 installation, boot to CD, press enter to run setup, it detects my hard drives, detects my cdrom and dvd drives, then just stops, about 5 seconds into the install. I have tried text mode setup and no probe setup, all hang at same spot. This machine is currently running XP as my gaming system and I was going to dual boot with XP on one drive and RH9 on the other. I even pulled out my drive that has XP on it and it still hangs at the same spot. This is a recently built system, pretty much top of the line. Any help will be greatly appreciated, here are the last lines of the install and the system specs below that.
