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.

Bumping this (which I RARELY if ever do --bad Netiquette and usually not necessary)
--BUT am I REALLY the only person who's had trouble installing on a Laptop) with the Boot CD.
I dom't really want to download another 3 - 4GB for say 2006 if THAT has a problem installing as well.
The only other piece of info I can give is that my Laptop already had a DUAL boot SUSE 9.3 and Windows XP pro (with SP2) with SUSE's GRUB installed. --Maybe Mandrake can't get rid of the GRUB / SUSE Bootloader before starting it's work --surprising as normally the whole start up is loaded into a RAMDISK from which partitions can get formatted etc etc.
