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.

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.

i am trying to install Linux mandrake 9.1 on my computer and from a floppy disk that i've made using rawwriter or something and then system asks me to choose among a list of drivers to be able to gain access to scsi devices on my computer. The thing is i try to rerun the installation in expert mode so that it allows me to avoid the problem, which does not work, and still, before that, i've tried launching the installation in all different modes and it still keeps asking me to choose among a list and hence, once i've finally selected one the drivers listed which names do not correspond anyway to what i have in use on my computer, it appears a dialog box asking me to enter the selected drivers parameters for kernel... i've looked in search engines to see if i could possibly get hold of such a type of information, i did find a list though but none of which would help me, ...
well, has anyone got some helpfull information on this, or anything to sort me out?
