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.

I am interested in installing the latest woody snapshot of debian on my linux drive (hdb) It's a 20 gig hd and I have dedicated a 6 gig logical partition to experimenting with other distros. I am currently running rh7.2 (engima) on hdb already. I would like to know what the best procedure is for installing debian so that I have a triple lilo boot. Any help is appreciated.
I suggest if you have the bandwidth you do a netinstall, just head over to DebianPlanet and do a search for netinstall, or you can always download the iso's, but I'm not sure if they have an iso for Woody. Good choice btw I run Debian Woody on the XFS file system and have yet to have any problems.
I have an 8cd set of snapshot 3/14/2002 from a fellow in the bay area who kindly burned them for me. I''m way back in the boondocks of Ympqua National Forest with a 26400 baud rate! Still I've been able to use the RH Network and up2date quite to my satisfaction. I was hoping that aptget would do the same. Do I just do a CDROM boot and install it on my /deb partition using a common /home and /swap?
Ok, I installed windows and copied my partitions to my other hard drive that is the same size. I was running a dual boot on my original hard drive with Debian and windows XP. I copied all of my parittions to my new hard drive with drive image except my windows partition (which I installed seperately before transferring my Linux partitoins). On my new hard drive I have all of that but installed Suse also. I am now dual booting Suse and XP with Suse's version of Lilo on the MBR. When I am in Suse, I can see all my Debian files in the Debian partition. When I try to pick Debian as the option in Lilo, I get a secondary green dos-like Lilo menu. When I try to pick Debian from that, it does nothing, but when I try to pick any other option from there it boots ok like windows or suse. My Debian drive is located on /dev/hda3. Does anyone have a solution for this?
