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.

Hmm, I have downloaded both the cd and dvd images with no errors and all checksum tests passed. Both images created without error (I have done this before) and both do boot. Now the weird part, both give the same error when lilo attempts to install, Lilo can not be written to disk, please use a boot floppy to...whatever.
What has changed, because I fell back to 11.0 and no issues, lilo installed and I could boot into Slack.
What has changed in lilo between 11.0 and 12.0 and how do we fix the issue?
Boot from the CD or DVD. There is an example how to boot up your install. I think it should be something like "hugesmp.s root=/dev/hda2 rdinit= ro" in your case if I remember right. This boots up your installed system although it takes the kernel from CD/DVD. Then you can (un)install and modify what you like.
