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 searched for this, because I was sure it was a common error, but I cant find anything. Im sure I am missing something very simple but...
I d/l'ed the four files for mandrake on their official page, three of them with cd1, cd2... and so on... in the file name. I burned each of these three files onto three separate cd's.
Then I put cd1 in my d: drive, restart my computer, and windows loads as normal. I was expecting for the cd to load an installation screen (without xp loading), just like it does on my XP system restore disk.
What am I missing?
also, if I want to set up a dual-boot system for XP and mandrake, will the installation cd do that for me, or do I need to partition beforehand?
since you're running xp, try using nero instead. Navigate the downloaded .iso files and open them with nero (right-click and open with). You can even just start up nero and there should be an option to open cd images. then burn it.
hello i have looked at using "k3b" to burn an iso image but it seems to me it can only burn an iso image on dvd not cd iv allso looked at using "xcdroast" but i have got version "0.98 alpha 13" so i lokked at upgrading to 0.98 15 but in the mn pages it does say that it can not burn iso images to cd any more help on how to do this would be appreciated thanks
