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 want to make a autoboot disk, but the procedure is different than that standard version. So I think I need to modify the installation code to suit for my purpose. Is there anyone can tell me where to get the code. thanks.
If you mean that you want instructions for the process of performing a new installation, it will depend on the distro and version (Redhat 7.2, Mandrake 8.1, etc.) you have, as well as the hardware installed in the computer.
iso images of Redhat versions are available at Linuxiso.org. You would download the images and burn them to CDs to create the install disks. Read their documentation for more information on that.
As for step-by-step installation instructions, I haven't installed that version, so I can't walk you through it. I would suggest checking Redhat's support site for instructions. Read their Hardware Compatibility List carefully to verify that your computer's hardware is fully supported.
sorry~~ I misunderstanding what you mean. The iso file is good, but I still can't change the install procedure. The iso file should be my last step of this work.
I want to add a driver to the kernel. And do not install something than standard. For instance web server. So first I need to write a driver and build a new kernel. Then write the installation program for removing some applications what I don't need. Last step is, make an iso file then burn it to CD.
If I don't do that, I have to install every computers manually. It's not efficiently.
