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.

just downloaded the 3 iso files directly from redhat. then opened iso's to burn contents onto cd's. put disk 1 in and everything works fine until it asks me where i want to install from. tried placing files on a partitioned fat32 drive but no luck. says the cd is not found when i try installing from cd's. also tried installing from ftp from linux but kept getting disconnected.
this is my first experience with linux so i'm extremely brand new. somewhat windows savvy but wanting to expand. any ideas on what can be done? cd's read fine when running windows.
computer is 600mhz hp with 256mb ram and 30gb hard drive. has dual cdrom's but unplugged one to see if that might be causing any problems.
place the cd in the cdrom drive where linux is going to be installed from then type at the prompt linux mediacheck this will check if your cd r ok for install if it fails then either u have burnt the cd incorrectly ot the files u dnld need to be pulled again
