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 get the following message during the instalation of RedHat 9 (same thing with 7.2):
ERROR 2 READING HEADER: CPIO: BAD MAGIC
and the insalation stops with these messages:
RUNNING ANACONDA...PLEASE WAIT..
EXEC: nO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY
INSTALL EXITED ABNORMALLY --RECEIVED SIGNAL 11
SENDING TERMINATION SIGNALS..DONE..
SENDING KILL SIGNALS..DONE
I have a k7vza motherboard with a VIA chipset
Duron 850 Mhz
128 + 32 MB SDRAM
HDD 60 GB Seagate UDMA 100
24x CDROM drive (atapi BCD)
I tried various things, after reading some information from a linux forum, like moving the HDD and the CDROM on different IDE because the HDD is UDMA100 and the CDROM is an older one, so now the hard disk is Primary Master and the CDRom Primary Slave, also I tried to boot only with the 128 dimm, but nothing..the same message.
Also I put another hard disk inside, but I guess the hard disk has nothing to do with this, because it stops at the beginning, when it does all the things in memory..
I think the problem is the CDROM, but I don't know what to do..and don't tell me to buy another one :-)
Please help me.
