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.

Ok, I've been using linux for a couple of years now and I wanted to try some new versions out there. I d/l RH9 and Mandrake. I burned the iso's, while installing I keep getting errors on the 2nd cd from BOTH versions. I thought I maybe got bad iso's so I d/l'ed them again, and again, and again from different sources and re burned. Same thing. Disk 1 is ok on both. I've pretty much just given up on them... Anyone have ANY ideas? I did some search on here and no one has really given a answer to this yet... I had this problem with RH8 as well....
Perhaps the isos are bigger than the cds you are using, or your cdburner doesn't allow overburning -- which is a couple of megs of space over the rated capacity of a CD that is usually there for fault tolerance reasons, sometimes used on cd images for just a little extra stuff.
Or -- perhaps your CD burner is simply over heating -- heard of that, too.
Burn the first ISO, and then wait a little while.
Try to burn the second ISO.
Hmm, well, the error I get is it will stop on a package and tell me it is corrupt, and I can try again to install it. I've used the cd checker during the RH install and it tells me the cd is ok. When I try again it tells me the same. I'm using 700mb CD's and my burner does allow overburing. I'm using Nero, but I've tried 2 others. I'll check the 'sums' and see what it says. Just weird... I've downloaded the 2nd cd's for Mandrake and Redhat atleast 10 times from all different mirrors... I've also tried using CD-RW, and still nothing.
i had the same problem, and for the life of me, i could not figure out the problem. All media was good. I figured it was a problem with the way the installer was handling my cdrom, so i installed a version of slack and then instaled rh9 over it without a problem and using the same media. still dont know what was wrong, but this worked.
Ive seen this problem before with freebsd, and redhat linux. In both cases it was bad ram. Look at a GNU program called memtest86 (Just look it up on google). My case was that I kept using PC100 chip and a PC133 Chip together (I just hadn't checked). I don't know if that's the case for your machines, but theirs a good chance might have bad ram.
