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 retail rh9 and i go through installation just fine until i hit the part with package installations. It starts to install my selected packets of software up until on of the last few. It's xfree86-tools and it gets halfway through then requests for disk 2 to complete the installation. Fine. I put in disk 2. Guess what, when i do that it says wrong disk in drive when it's clearly the RedHat Linux Installation cd disk 2 of 3!!! Did i just get dicked hardcore by redhat by them not sending me a valid installation disk 2 or what!? i can't not install that packet as it is required and i can't unselect it in the list. Please Help. Thanks.
i media checked the disk a bunch of times passed every time. i have 640mb ram i'm assuming that's enough to run redhat. F*you i'm not goin back to windows. Many others have had this exact prob (did many google searches) but no hard evidence on how to fix it. I just can't comprehend how a manufactured disk that's made 10000000's of times the same way and mine is different.
