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.

to determine which kernel supports your scsi. armed w/that just boot from the cdrom, and type in the kernel name when promted. the rest of the install should be normal. the scsi kernel(whichever one you select) should have no problem w/the ide.
Ok thanks for the advice..so far its booting fine...however the one issue I'm having is...when I use cfdisk to write the partion to the disk it seems to write fine (doesent tell me any errors) however when I go back into cfdisk it shows me that the partions were never written to disk.

i think you're refering to formatting, which is done later by the install. from cfdisk, you write a partition table. from the install when you select target partition, is where you'll format the partitions.
