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.

Hi. I made a bootable USB key for Puppy 2.12. I played around with it and figured I want to keep it permanent, so I want to install it to my USB HDD. I made a 40 GB ext3 partition (I know, it's more than enough). So, I booted up Puppy with my USB pen drive, clicked start>setup>Puppy universal installer. I noticed that the USB Hard Drive option was not implemented yet so I just went with the USB Flash Drive option (I figured, there's really no difference, I just need to tell the wizard where I want my root to be). I pointed my root to /dev/sdc3. I went through the wizard with no problem. Then I went to start>control panel>grub bootloader config; went through the process and installed it to my external HDD MBR. I rebooted, the GRUB menu showed up, and selected 'Linux (on /dev/sdc3)'. It says ".....loading kernel modules.." or something to that extent for a while, then underneath that I get a kernel panic error. I don't remember the exact error message but it was something like "not sync..unable to mount root fs on unknown block-0,0".
I was able to install Ubuntu 6.06 to my external USB HDD, and I would get an error like this; I remember something about delaying mounting the USB drive so it can load the USB modules (makes sense), but I forgot how to do this. Was this delay option in GRUB or within the kernel? How can I load the USB modules before it attempts to mount my USB drive?
