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.

10.1 install issues
I'm having two issues. First, I am putting Mandrake 10 on a box that had Fedora core on it. It recognizes my hard drives differently though. I have an 80 GB drive on IDE 3 (my mother board has two additional IDE ports, for hardware raid), and a 20 GB drive on IDE 1 (primary). It recognizes the 20 GB drive as hde and the 80 GB drive as hda. I previously booted off of the 20 GB drive. Will it be ok to install the boot loader on the 20 GB, even though its considered hde instead of hda?
Second question. I tried to install 10.1 with a MS Intellimouse explorer (USB). When the X-based installer was loaded, moving the mouse would make the cursor jump all over the screen. I tried to switch the mouse to a dell scroll mouse (USB also), but when X-based installer came up, the mouse cursor did not move at all. Are there any kernel parameters I should try passing in to make either mouse work right? I tried 'linux proto=IMPS/2', but that didn't seem to make a difference with the MS mouse.
