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'm in the process of upgrading my "old" router/server box from an old AMD K6 to an equally old Dual Pentium setup. On the Dual Pentium, it just won't boot the 1st CD. It will boot other CDs, like the Slack 10.1, just not the Slack 11. These are the "retail" CDs.
I even downloaded an new CD1 ISO and burnt it, but that had the same problems.
The same CDs are bootable in 2 other machines I've tried.
Any ideas why just 1 CD will not boot, in just 1 machine.
And you're sure it's burned right ? Check the md5sum of the disk.
Of course, if it works on other machines, then it makes no sense, but still it might be burned wrong and the drive is older and can't handle the errors (this is just a theory of course ... probably an incorrect one too)
