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 downloaded two of the slackware isos, the first 2 discs, since i don't really have a need for the others at this time. I tried installing it on one of my computers, which is a Duron 700 oced to 950 odd (but i think it was around 800 at the time of the install, which is perfectly stable) 256mb ram and a tnt2.
The install gets to the step of selecting what services to run on startup, after i hit ok, it just sits there. I left it for 15-20 minutes, and it just sits there still :/
I rebooted, but obviously hadn't finished the install, (no root pwd etc) and i get disc error when i boot.
The cd doesnt appear to be damaged, my slackware 8.1 cd was worse! :P could the iso have corrupted? Has this happened to anyone else?
Also, one tar.gz file from the install, don't remember which one now, comes up with an error, so i think it could be a corrupt download. It's kind of wierd, out of 5 or so iso's ive ever downloaded, this has never happened, i used DAP as well, took about 12 hours, i didn't pause it either.
So, do you think the iso could be corrupt? has this happened to any of you before?
