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 have one computer where I want to install slackware.
I put in the CD, enter for boot, and this is what I get.
He starts OK, give me about 2 pages of reading, and stalls at
PCI: using configuration type 1
PCI : Probing PCI hardware
PCI : Probing PCI hardware ( bus 00 )
- ( blinking )
yeah, since I wasn't sure, I had tried already both.
The one was worse than the other.
right now, it is --no plug and play --.
Since I had noticed that my CD ( under windows ) was acting strangely, and that my win98 had a bad habit of rebooting itself, I tought of a hardware problem too.
Anyway, I kept on rebooting , and for sure, it happened that I got to the 2nd prompt.
I used fdisk and partitioned my drive.
When it wrote the partition, it gave me a message ( which i forgot ) but made me rebooting.After that: same shit as before.
the most messages end like this :
Code: Bad EIP value
Kernel panic: Aice, killing interupt handler
In interrupt handler - not syncing
Do you have another CD drive that you could try? If not then perhaps try a cleaning cd or the much less technical solution of opening the drive and giving a short sharp blow in the direction of the lens.
How did you get the CDs? If they are not officially burnt CDs then you may want to try burning them at a lower speed and verifying the md5sums of the ISOs that were downloaded.
I am havbing a hardware problem, and I suspect my Mb, or the processor.
I checked CDs, ram, floppy and keyboard for instability or intermittend faults.
So, I am giving up on this old computer, and he will be repaced next week.
Thanks for the help
