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.

We just got a spanking new HP ProLiant DL380! We want to put on Slackware 9.1. I've got two problems, one minor and one major. Here are my install notes.
HP ProLiant DL 380
4 18GB SCSI Drives
Smart Array 5i Controller
Currently Configured as 4 Logical Drives with Raid 0
I've booted up from the CD and loaded the raid.s kernel. I've located the 4 drives at
/dev/cciss/c0d0 and so on. I used fdisk to create a very quick and dirty layout on the first drive:
/dev/c0d0p1 300MB /boot
/dev/c0d0p2 2GB swap
/dev/c0d0p3 the rest /
I did not fdisk the other three drives. Slack is bitching about that, but I don't think it's fatal.
Slackware loads up and everything goes well until the LILO install. I ask slack to stick LILO on the MBR and it says it can't. (minor) How do I get LILO installed?
So I just made a boot floppy. I reboot from floppy and get to just before the login prompt. I get an endless series of 6 character strings like this
They scroll so fast I can't read them. Any ideas?
