Linux Installation ???????

Hi!

Depends on your distribution if it's RedHat:

Login as root and do this:
1. Put in your RedHat CD into the CD-ROM
2. cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/ or something similiar.
3. rpm -ivh lpg-0.4-4.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh nag-1.0-4.noarch.rpmrpm -ivh netcfg-2.21-1.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh sag-0.6-3.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh faq-6.0-1.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh howto-6.1-1.noarch.rpm
4. Now you can find a bunch of docs under /usr/docs.
5 sag - System Administration Guide
nag - Network Administration Guide
Not sure about the others.

Have phun.

Ok, since the last answer told you how to get documentation AFTER you install, I will let you know where to find it BEFORE.

If you purchased your distribution in a boxed set then it will usually come with an installation manual. I find RedHat's and Mandrakes to be well written for the new Linux user.

If you have two computers, I recommend using one to connect to the internet while you are installing Linux on the other. That way you can visit the following websites for help: www.linux.com, or www.linux.org. From these two websites I have been able to find links to everything needed.

If you want to purchase a book, I recommend the Little Black Book Series, in this case Linux Installation and Configuration ($24). Or you may getThe No BS Guide to Linux.

Good Luck and remember if you can install windows then Linux shouldn't be a problem.

Pick up a copy of Linux Mandrake, Linux Red Hat, or Corel Linux from your local retailer like Comp USA. It isn't that expensive AND your purchase sends the message to retailers that Linux users are serious and are ready to spend money.

My point is, more software vendors will be willing to port their products over to Linux if they know there is a viable market at the retail level.

Its great that Linux is free but lets not sell ourselves short in the long run.
