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.

yesterday I installed Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 (SLES9) on an old gateway server we had lying around. (old being two or three years old)
I set it up with software raid during the install, and accepted most of the defaults (which left me with no GUI, no server software, etc. etc.) Since I'm lazy, I figured I could reinstall everything, then check the "install everything" box.
I also decided setting up hardware raid would be faster than software, so I went into the Adaptec controller's setup utility and set up a RAID-1 array.
I rebooted with the same exact SLES9 CD 1 in, and the screen popped up with the word "welcome" in different languages as usual, but instead of giving me a list of things I could do (i.e. boot from hard disk, install suse linux, set up kernel, etc.) it just froze and put bars across the screen.
I'm hoping I can use hardware raid, but I'm going to switch back to software (or possibly none at all) to check if that solves the problem.
Anyone else have this issue?
