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.

Having an issue that is all over the web. During boot I get (initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: invaled argument.
"can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs on..."
I have tried everything, re-downloading the media and checking the md5sum, trying several different cd/dvd drives including the internal and several usb external and also tried several burn speeds.
I have tried usb thumb drive, resetting the bios, adding several cammands to the boot options including nohd. Many people have had success by switching dvd drives, though everything I have tried consistantly gives me the mount error.
It is just now I get this error with the new linux mint 16 "petra" kde x64, never before, it is a x64 bit dell laptop vostro 1000 with ZevenOS Neptune currently installed. The one option I have not used suggested is to wipe the hard drive, which was related to a stdin error.
The tail of the boot info this leads from says:
ata3: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 300
ata2: SATA link down....
ata4: SATA link down....
I am downloading the "Olivia" version of mint which I will try and post results..
Has any one had this issue? Any suggestions?
I have now downloaded and tried Linux Mint 15 Olivia x64 KDE and it booted right up....
