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.

weird thing happened yesterday, when I went to start the computer it locked up and would not start. I tried what I knew how to do, which was boot into failsafe mode which works but I am not able to do anything. then I tried to use the boot floppy to use rescue boot all it does is try to boot into the system and locks up again. so I tried looking at what it was doing and it says something about not being able to load /etc/rd.r. or /etc/rd.c something, I cannot seem to remember the file now and stops at that point.
Does anyone have a clue what is going on with this. If not I think I am going to create a network install boot floppy and replace 10 Beta With 10 official and see if things work any better. when I installed beta everything worked fine first time, but the network card, I had to pull it from the computer, restart, then put it back into the machine and restart again and it worked fine so if that is all the problems I am going to run into switching to Official then it might be worth it. I have only had beta about 3 weeks now so there is nothing really set up yet with it.
