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.

Booting my Rh8 sys stops at LILO and just says 'LI'. I only have 1 hard drive, and RH8 is the only OS on there. Not dual booting or anything...
I've seen this happen before, its actually happend TO me before, but I can't remember for the life of me how to get past it. I found the answer here at linuxquestions.org but I can't seem to find it again (it'd be easier if you could enter 2 letter search strings :\ )
The only boot disk I have is a RH 7.2 floppy (which I believe is how I fixed it the first time), but I don't have my RH8 CD's either.
well judging by what you said, you have gotten around it before, but from my experiences, and whenever i have ever seen that, which was more than once, its always been a hardware problem..
could be pure coincidence, but thats with my experience..
naw im pretty sure its something i did, i was poking around in kde's control center and was changing some boot options, i obviously did something the sys didnt like. im pretty sure thats how it happened last time too.
