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.

I had a master 120gb ATA hard drive in a system with Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition. The license expired. I decided to switch to Fedora Core 6.
I purchased a 320 GB SATA drive and plugged it into the same computer. I installed Fedora 6 to the SATA drive during the installed. I choose to install grub ORIGINALLY on the First /boot segment of my SATA drive and choose Fedora as my primary OS.
I rebooted it and it loaded to Windows 2003 Server instead of Fedora, with no grub/boot options
I put the Fedora DVD back in and tried re-installing the boot loader by putting it on the MBR on HDA (the 120gb ATA drive). It attempted to do this, but exited the installer saying no changes to my kernel were made so it was unable to change my boot order/program.
So, i'm stuck! I am out of ideas.
WHAT I WANT:
IDEALLY - I want to use fedora core 6 as my primary server OS ...AND I want to be able to boot to windows 2003 server enterprise edition as well. but right now my license is expired for windows...so I will need to take the data off it and reinstall a different version because I do not have a legitimate key.
What is the best order of solutions for solving my problem? I would be fine loading up Fedora 6, mounting my NTFS drive and taking all the data off it, and then dual-booting with Windows down the road.
And just so you know - I work for a company who sells windows applications exclusively. It does not make too much job-sense for me to give Bill-Gates the middle finger and not do any work. I love linux and want to find a happy medium for my personal and professional life.
