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.

Originally posted by rotvogel If you can't boot from the CD you'll need a bootdisk (bare.i for example) and 2 rootdisks (install.1 and install.2). You can create these disks with a RAWRITE program.
Please read the documentation included in the /rootdisks and /bootdisks dir (README.TXT) what version of RAWRITE you need and how to use it.
I've made several attempts at making a boot disk and the two root disks by using Rawrite but have been unsuccesful. I have tried to locate the files on my CD, can someone please give me a URL for the image files? I don't want them compressed, thanks
drone - there are several versions of RAWRITE. I tried regular RAWRITE, it didn't work; RAWRITEXP, didn't work, RAWRITE13 (I think), perfect. My point is just that if you are having trouble creating the floppies, you might solve it by trying a different version of RAWRITE. -- J.W.
